Cardinals to Honor 'Rally Cat' with Appreciation Day Benefiting Animal Rescue

Rivea RuffContributorAugust 12, 2017

The St. Louis Cardinals' lucky charm is getting its own appreciation day. 

The Cardinals announced they will be hosting the first-ever Rally Cat Appreciation Day at Busch Stadium on September 10, when they host the Pittsburgh Pirates.

"Rally Cat," as he's become known, became an unofficial mascot for St. Louis after wandering on the field moments before Yadier Molina hit a grand slam during Wednesday's game.

Proceeds from the game honoring the stray kitten will go to the Animal Rescue Foundation to benefit feral animals just like him.
