Before today's doubleheader, several rookies were forced to get coffee for the team.
When you’re a rookie in the MLB, there are unwritten rules that you must follow as part of a rites of passage. For the St. Louis Cardinals rookies, that means getting some coffee for the rest of your team. Several rookie relievers were overseen in their uniforms at a Starbucks across the street from Wrigley Field, where they are facing the Chicago Cubs.
The Cardinals players will certainly need some coffee, after a rain-lengthened game last night and a doubleheader today. The players seemed to have fun with it though, snapping a selfie with smiles and thumbs up. Maybe they were allowed to get some themselves.
