Four games against the Pirates, six against the Giants, and three against the Padres. That’s all that stands in the way of a trip back to the postseason, and everyone knows that all you have to do is be one of the eight these days and anything can happen. Obviously I am happy with a 4 1/2-game lead entering the Pirates series. Let’s take it one game at a time and GO BLUE! In the meantime, thanks for your continued comments and I wanted to pass along this press release for my upcoming appearance in St. Louis for TOUCH. I look forward to meeting more fans.
ALYSSA MILANO SHOWS OFF HIGH-END CARDINALS FASHION FOR WOMEN AT BUSCH STADIUM SEPT. 26
Sportservice, the Food and Retail Provider at Busch Stadium, Welcomes Actress and Fashion Designer Alyssa Milano for an Autograph Signing for her TOUCH Fashion Collection
ST. LOUIS (Sept. 12, 2008) – Cardinals fans purchasing their favorite team’s apparel will receive more for their money on Friday, Sept. 26. Thanks to the St. Louis Cardinals and Delaware North Companies Sportservice, the food service and retail provider at Busch Stadium, actress Alyssa Milano will be greeting Cardinals fans from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. for a promotional autograph signing of her TOUCH clothing line at the Official Cardinals Team Store.
“I created TOUCH for women who love sports as much as I do and want to be comfy, but still stylish, while cheering on their favorite team,” said Alyssa Milano. “Cardinals fans are known for their passion for their team, and I was inspired to create the TOUCH collection for exactly that kind of fan!”
Milano, a celebrated actress best known for her role on the hit television shows “Charmed” and “Who’s the Boss,” created the women’s fashion line TOUCH by Alyssa Milano to give female fans a chic option for sporting their team’s logo. Major League Baseball and G-III Sports partnered with Milano to bring the TOUCH collection to baseball stadiums across the country, including Busch Stadium and select retailers.
“The St. Louis Cardinals and Sportservice have always been ahead of the curve when it comes to providing St. Louis fans with the most innovative, fashion-forward apparel available. We’re proud to have been one of the front-runners in offering fans Alyssa’s wildly popular fashions,” said Loren Pawlitz, Sportservice retail manager at Busch Stadium. “Women appreciate the versatility of the TOUCH line because it’s both stylish and comfortable, and the pieces are hip enough to transition to post-game celebrations.”
Sportservice oversees all retail operations within Busch Stadium and was instrumental in bringing Milano to St. Louis for this event. Retail managers made the decision to carry Milano’s line in 2007, in response to fans’ needs. Milano’s TOUCH line is one of hundreds of retail options making the Official Cardinals Team Store one of the most diverse and authentic selections of Cardinals merchandise available.
“We’re thrilled to host Alyssa and are excited to see the fans’ reactions,” added Pawlitz. “Cardinals fans are some of the most passionate fans in the country, and we have no doubt they’ll convey this enthusiasm when they welcome Alyssa to St. Louis for this special event.”
Thanks to the Phillies organization for making this day at Citizens Bank Park so special as I was able to spend time meeting other baseball fans, show new women’s ballpark fashions with TOUCH, visit with some of the personnel on the field, and spend half of the fifth inning of the Cards-Phillies game talking baseball with the Phillies’ TV broadcast crew in the press box. Here are some pictures from the appearance there:
