Cardinals honor Mark Reynolds's awkward catch with outfield artwork

Tuesday April 28th, 2015

These are tough times for the Cardinals. Ace Adam Wainwright is done for the season and Jason Heyward is nursing a sore groin. But the players are still able to have a little fun. 

When they arrived home in St. Louis on Monday, the Cards were greeted by a tape outline of Mark Reynolds in leftfield, in honor of his awkward yet impressive catch in Sunday's game. 

Matt Holliday, the starting leftfielder, confessed to FOX Sports Midwest's Jim Hayes that he was the artist behind the sketch.

After Wainwright's injury, what's next for Cardinals, DH rule?​

Reynolds took a roundabout path to the ball and crashed headfirst into the wall.

To be fair, he had only played 15 major-league innings in the outfield before Sunday.
