St. Louis Cardinals 2020 Photo Day – Partial

photo: Daniel Ponce de Leon (Jasen Vinlove/Imagn)

The St. Louis Cardinals held their annual photo day on Wednesday, February 19. Normally this would mean that all 73 players in camp as well as the 11 coaches would pass through a number of photography stations to have their pictures taken, in the first of 10 years wearing the Nike swoosh.

However, as luck would have it, Mother Nature intervened and those photographers who were set up outside, including Jasen Vinlove from Imagn, did not get to shoot everyone. So instead of the hoped-for three installments – one post each with pitchers, position players and coaches, the 39 who were captured by Vinlove are shown here together.

For more, please click here to be taken to the Cardinals team roster page, including all major leaguers at the end of last season. From there, select any player’s name to be taken to his Player Profile page. In addition, all minor league rosters and the Roster Matrix, with all transactions and a view of rosters by level and position can be accessed from “ROSTERS/PLAYERS/MOVES” on the left menu bar, underneath the site logo.

This gallery is organized by logical category assignments which are mine. Pitchers lead the way, followed by position players and coaches.
