ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay released a video inviting the mayor of Milwaukee to visit St. Louis later this summer. It is in response to a viral video attacking Yadier Molina's all star chances.
In the video Mayor Slay said, "Mayor Barrett, I'm Francis Slay the mayor of St. Louis and a life long fan of the St. Louis Cardinals. The first week of August our Cardinals will be playing your Brewers right here in St. Louis. I'd like to invite you to join me at one of the games. We can compare notes about our cities, compare local beers, and oh yes, compare catchers. Ours is a five time all star, a six time gold glover and he wears World Series rings. If you think you can make it, give me a call."
Earlier this week, the Milwaukee Brewers released attack ads targeting Molina and lobbying for Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy to get the all star nod.
The only problem is, he's about a million votes behind Yadi.
