Cards October Message Board Contest Begins

The top message post in October will receive an autographed copy of the new book "Satchel - The Life and Times of an American Legend".

I am pleased to announce that for one month only, our popular summer message board contest recognizing the top Post of the Month has made a comeback.

The best post on our Scout.com Cardinals board during October will receive a special prize - an autographed copy of the new book "Satchel - The Life and Times of an American Legend", signed by author Larry Tye.

The Negro League legend and Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Satchel Paige spent the majority of his brief and late major league career with the 1951-1953 St. Louis Browns at the ages of 44-46.

Tye's book is meticulously researched and serves as a complete ledger of the life and career one of the most-important figures in baseball in the 20th Century. To see a four minute video about Paige narrated by Tye, click on this link.

Then, head on over to our popular message board today and start posting. Look for the thread pinned to the top of the board to make your nominations and best of luck!
