#CompleteGamer – Celebrating Bob Gibson in 2018

On April 15th, 59 years to the date of his first Major League start, the Cardinals launched the #CompleteGamer fan engagement campaign to honor Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Gibson, who played his entire 17-year career with the Cardinals and ended his career with more complete games (255) than his franchise leading number of wins (251).

To reach a new generation of fans, the team has released a #CompleteGamer song and music video that serves as a theme song for the campaign and seeks to convey Gibson’s extraordinary life story in a musical style reminiscent of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton by using hip-hop accompanied by powerful music performed by an orchestra.

As part of the campaign, fans are asked to share examples of people that they know who are a #CompleteGamer in their own respective field or vocation. Each week, the team will highlight at least one fan #CompleteGamer and they will receive a special Gibson autographed item from the team. Fans can nominate someone through an online submission form at cardinals.com/Gibson.


Cardinals Fan Music Contest

The club has launched the first-ever Cardinals Fan Music Contest as a way for fans to share their creativity and musical talent, along with their passion for Cardinals baseball. Fans are asked to write, perform and share an original Cardinals-inspired song/anthem and share the performance via a video or audio file. One lucky performance will be crowned the winner and receive a trip to Nashville to have their song professionally recorded and mastered at the Shoe Box Studios. The Cardinals will also produce a professional music video and share the artist’s work with all of Cardinals Nation! Details can be found at cardinals.com/MusicContest


#BigMacFlashback

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 1998 Home Run Race that ultimately concluded with Mark McGwire establishing a new MLB single-season home run record.

As part of the lookback, the team will be asking fans to share their photos, memorabilia, stories and experiences from the historic 1998 season as the fan perspective is an important part of this historic time in baseball. Fans can share their favorite #BigMacFlashback memories with us using our online submission form at cardinals.com/McGwire.
