Reliever Chuckie Fick was happy he could make his Major League debut on Saturday night in St. Louis and in front of family members who traveled to Busch Stadium for the game.
"It felt great," he said. "These are the best fans in the world. I've been a Cardinal for 25 years now because of my father. It was definitely nice to make my debut here."
Fick's father, Chuck, is a longtime scout for the Cardinals.
