Holy Car Envy, Batman! Cardinals' Freese and Motte Pose with the Batmobile
Baseball wasn't the only exciting thing happening at Busch Stadium on Wednesday.
Sure, there's the game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the San Diego Padres. And if the Cards win to finish off a series sweep, a three-game winning streak should weaken the sting of the four-game losing streak that preceded it.
But earlier in the afternoon, some superhero toys were on display around the Cardinals' home park—some of Batman's cool vehicles, to be specific. The Tumbler Batmobile and Batpod were parked outside Busch Stadium for fans to check out.(When I say "parked," I mean there for display. It's not like they were parallel-parked on the street outside the ballpark.)
Those fans included Cardinals third baseman David Freese and closer Jason Motte. The duo posed for pictures with the Dark Knight's rides before preparing for Wednesday's game, showing that just about everyone—even World Series champions—wants to be Batman.
On his Twitter account, Motte posted video of a driver revving up the Tumbler with the note "Sounds fast." No word from Motte on whether or not anyone got to fire off the vehicle's machine guns or blast its jet engine in back.
Motte also Tweeted a photo of himself on the Batpod.
Could the Cardinals' closer push for making that the team's official bullpen car?
Oh, teams don't use those anymore, do they? It's too bad, because you could paint that thing red and put a Cardinal head on the front of it to make one intimidating entrance into a ballgame.
So between Motte and Freese, who would be Batman and who would be Robin? I'm thinking Motte seems more like the alpha dog, though Freese does have that superhero chin.
By the way, I realize Freese shares a last name with one of the Caped Crusader's arch-enemies, but I'm going to spare you any forced puns. No one needs to see that.
