Cardinals Open Season In Cincinnati

The Cardinals lift the lid on the 2014 season today, taking on the Reds at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. Adam Wainwright takes the ball for the Redbirds, while Cincy sends Johnny Cueto to the hill. First pitch is scheduled for 3:00 this afternoon.

Cardinals second baseman Mark Ellis will start the season on the disabled list. The veteran aggravated a sore knee last week in Florida. Infielder Pete Kozma will open the season on the 25-man roster, while rookie Kolten Wong starts at second base.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
