Cardinals Bullpen surprises Naile with signed champagne bottle
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KFVS) - Charleston native James Naile seems to be getting more comfortable with his role as a Cardinals reliever.
His nerves have settled a bit, in part thanks to the St. Louis pitching staff.
Naile said some of his fellow teammates recently surprised him with a special gift.
He said the bullpen surprised him with a nice bottle of champagne signed by everyone.
“...This is a keepsake. I mean, um, I just saw it just about a minute ago, so I’m overwhelmed.”
Naile has been a Cardinal fan all his life.
So far, he’s pitched one inning for the Big League club, giving up one hit but no runs.
