VP OF COMMUNICATIONS: “We need you do so a story about the new food here at the ballpark.”
ME: “Um, yeah. I think I can handle that.” (Needless to say, I was in heaven!)
I was one lucky reporter, doing several stories back-to-back about new menu items around the ballpark and Ballpark Village.
The club’s restaurant, Cardinals Nation, boosted it’s menu and Sportservice had its annual roll out of new stadium foods in consecutive weeks and I was the one for the job. Somebody’s got to do it…
We began with Cardinals Nation, shooting with the restaurant’s Director of Operations — having him explain all of the new food items in a show-and-tell. Then put the story over the top with beauty shots of the food with a DSLR camera.

My next food assignment took place on Cardinals Media Day, where I shot with Sportservice Chef Michele DeMarco. We did one story per food station, shooting them like “look lives” and rolling out a new story each day leading up to the Cardinals home opener.

All of the food was to die for, but I have to say that the Oreo Churro hit it out of the ballpark 😉
