The Saint Louis Cardinals are the envy of the baseball world, and with good reason. It seems that every year they have a fresh crop of live arms and fundamentally-sound players who reach the postseason for their devoted, knowledgeable Cardinal Nation.
One of this 2013’s burgeoning superstars was starting pitcher Michael Wacha.
Selected in the first round of the 2012 draft, Wacha logged only one season in the minors before wowing the organization in 2013's spring training. Left off the opening day roster, he was promoted by May and showcased his talent and poise while alternating between starts and relief appearances. And then came the postseason.
By season’s end, Wacha was a fixture in the Cards’ rotation (nearly logging a no-no in his final start) and then went on to to dominate in the playoffs. He’s as fun to watch as his name is to say, and he has all of Cardinal Nation (and much of the country) gleefully calling out , “Wacha Wacha Wacha!” like a resurgent epidemic of Pac Man Fever!
Show your love of the Cardinals, Wacha and retro 80s video games with this fun new tee that depicts a cardinal-clad Pac Man ready to devour four ghosts representing the Cards' NL Central rivals (Pirates, Cubs, Brewers and Reds).
