ST. LOUIS – The Blues are back on home ice Thursday night with a chance to wrap up their playoff series against the Minnesota Wild, and everyone is invited to the watch party at Ballpark Village. Tim Ezell was there Thursday morning.

The party gets started early because the Cardinals play the Orioles at 12:15 p.m. Ballpark Village is also hosting a party to honor the nurses in the area. It’s a Nurse Appreciation Darty with drink specials and activities.

The newest Cardinal, Kramer Robertson, made his MLB debut during Tuesday night’s home game as a pinch-runner, and then he made his batting debut on Wednesday. He tributes his major league success to love and support from his parents. His mother, Kim Mulkey, is a national championship women’s basketball coach for the LSU Tigers, and it just so happens that Tim is an LSU alum. Mulkey met up with Tim on Thursday morning.
