BenFred: St. Louis lost loyal sports servant in Aaron Borchelt. We can learn from his legacy

Hands that once stopped screaming foul balls from reaching Cardinals fans could not be lifted high enough to shake hello.

When I think of the tireless servant the St. Louis sports community lost Tuesday, I will think of May 20, 2019.

In terms of giving back, Aaron wore more hats than a baseball team after rosters expanded. That evening’s event, the sixth annual Jason Motte Foundation Cornhole Challenge, was a big one on his crammed calendar. He ran this show, taking care of everything from the detailed notes he handed the inexperienced charity auctioneer (me), to the selection of songs on the playlist that pumped through the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten.
