ST. LOUIS–The minor league baseball season got underway Tuesday across the country and in Memphis last night, where the Cardinals’ AAA affiliate lost the opener to Durham 7-5.
Outfielder Matt Szczur went 0-4 in his debut for the Redbirds, but that did not spoil a date with special significance to his personal life.
Szczur says his donation went to an 18-month old girl in Ukraine. Now, he says, she’s busy being a kid.
Szczur and his wife started a foundation to help raise awareness about bone marrow donation and support other organizations doing the same thing.
