The six of them, led by Zack Potter and his girlfriend Kay Transtrum, were just there to get autographs and mingle with the Cardinals. That would have been good enough at the team’s Kingpin Challenge, the annual bowling event to raise money for Cardinals Charities. They didn’t have the money for the $1,000 it took to bowl, but Potter said he saved up to pay the $150 donation to hang out with the team and his group did the same. Assistant head coach Russ Grimm came up to sign autographs and engaged the group in conversation, asking if they were bowling. No, came the reply. So Grimm and the Cardinals engaged in a little charity of their own, carving out a couple of extra bowling spots for Transtrum and Zack’s younger brother Sam, a budding bowler himself.

“They’re probably a little jealous,” a smiling Transtrum said of her non-bowling friends.

“They enjoyed it,” said Grimm, who had originally offered to pay for the bowling spots before the Cards delivered the pair of openings. “That’s the way it should be."

That is a really cool story. I always love how charitable the Cards are.
