At an acceptable distance from any of his teammates in the approved, small group of players present Wednesday afternoon, Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong took the field at Busch Stadium for the first time in 2020.
“Honestly, walking to the field was such a good feeling,” Wong said. “It was almost like you’ve returned home.”
For more than a week, the Cardinals have opened their home ballpark to a limited group of players at specific, staggered times. On Wednesday, with the infield in good enough condition, and pitchers Adam Wainwright and Kwang Hyun Kim available to face hitters, four Cardinals participated in actual baseball activities.
