Cardinals Pitcher Dakota Hudson Finding Out He Made It To The Show Is Something Special

The only problem? You guessed it – he plays for the Cardinals.

Unless you’re a Cardinals diehard who spends more time following the nightly minor league reports of your Redbirds’ affiliates instead of rubbing his wife’s feet in hopes that she’ll finally return the favor and let you order the full Cinemax package, odds are you’ve never heard of Dakota Hudson.

Well, it turns out Hudson has been throwing fucking darts for the Memphis Redbirds this year, compiling a 13-3 record in 19 starts to go along with a 2.50 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. Hell, in 111 2/3 innings, Hudson has only allowed one home run, and keep in mind that this is in the Pacific Coast League, where guys hit home runs while they’re trying to bunt.

Any crap, it was simply a formality before Hudson was called up to the Show, but the moment he found out from his manager while he was on the mound was still truly something special. Here’s that moment as well as Hudson talking about it after making it to St. Louis:

I’m still not sure what it is, as I’ve never come close to making a Major League roster, or hell, a minor league roster for that matter, but there’s something that really gets me in the giblets every time you see a ballplayer’s dreams come true like that. Best of luck to the kid, except of course when he’s hurling against the Brewers.

Obviously, let’s pray his efforts during that series are enough to get him demoted…
