Cardinals Players Were Pumped to Hear Matt Adams Was Coming Back

August 22, 2018

The good news keeps coming for Cardinals fans! On top of being the hottest team in baseball right now, the team will have a clubhouse favorite back on the bench for the rest of this year.

Matt "Big City" Adams was acquired by the Cards on Tuesday and his teammates were pumped to hear it! Guys like Adam Wainwright, Matt Carpenter and Yadier Molina were quick to share their joy on social media

Adams had a message for Cardinals Nation, saying he could feel "there was something special happening with this team" when he came to St. Louis with the visiting Washington Nationals last week.

When I faced @Cardinals last week, I felt there was something special happening with this team. I can’t believe I actually get to be a part of it now! Excited to put the birds on the bat back on and play in front of Cardinal Nation again! Let’s Go Cards!!
