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.
