Jamie Pogue named Cardinals Bullpen Catcher

Former Long island Duck Catcher Jamie Pogue has been named the Bullpen Catcher for the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals.

I asked Jamie about his new job today,

"It means that although it wasn't the way I had hoped or envisioned, I will finally be at the top, in the big leagues. All of the hard work, sacrifice, determination and perseverance has culminated in this glorious opportunity."

Here's a a great article on "The Cardinal Nation" about Pogue.

Pogue a native of Guelph, Ontario played for the Ducks in 2003, 2007, and 2008. His best season came in 2008 when he hit .265 with 9 home runs, and 41 RBI's.

  1. That's great news! I had the pleasure of speaking with Jamie for a few minutes after a game in 2007. He seems like a great guy and I wish him the best!
