Pham, Whitey and Sierra Highlight New Cardinals Magazine
He’s edgy and plays with a motor that always runs full-speed, reminding Cardinals Nation of its hard-charging heroes of yesteryear. He’s also driven and demanding of himself, never taking his spot on the roster for granted. He’s Tommy Pham, the man providing a serious spark at the plate, on the bases and in the outfield for a Cardinals team making a push in the N.L. Central Division. The outfielder is on the cover of the new edition of Cardinals Magazine, sliding into the spotlight with a remarkable story of perseverance across 12 years in the organization.

Another Cardinal showing off his wheels is Magneuris Sierra, the speedy outfielder who started this season in Class A and jumped all the way to the majors. We also catch up with a Cardinals legend who knows plenty about speed—Hall of Fame Manager Whitey Herzog—as the club’s #CardsRatPack fan engagement campaign swing into high gear. He shares stories behind some of the classic photos that defined one of the most electric eras in franchise history.
