- It’s about to get WILD! With less than two weeks left in the Regular Season, Goldy and the Cards are playing their best baseball. Currently riding a 10-game winning streak (their first that long since 2001!), the team now holds a 4-game lead for the second NL Wild Card spot!
- This season, Goldy is celebrating his 10th year in Major League Baseball, and it’s a pretty big deal. Selected as the 246th pick (!!!) in the 2009 MLB Draft, this six-time All-Star has now reached a milestone less than 10% of players in MLB history achieve!
- Best in state. Last week, Paul recorded his 1,549th career hit. Sounds impressive…but there’s more. With that hit, Paul officially became the All-Time Hits Leader for players born in the state of Delaware, literally making him the best hitter from his state!
- Kindness never goes away. This year, Paul is the Cardinals’ nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award which recognizes outstanding community impact. A six-time nominee, Paul is being celebrated for his work with pediatric cancer patients and food insecurity!
- Even after “making it” in the Big Leagues, Paul wanted to continue pursuing his education. In 2012 and 2013, while playing with the D-Backs, Paul spent most road trips studying and doing homework as he worked to finish his college degree online!
