The St. Louis Cardinals organization removed the Christian symbols, including a cross, from the pitching mound this week.
It was offensive.
The local far left Riverfront Times started complaining about this weeks ago.
StL Today reported:
There were no decorations to the Busch Stadium pitching mound Friday night for the start of a five-game home stand.
In recent weeks, the grounds crew had carved a cross and a No. 6 (in honor of the late Stan Musial) on the back side of the mound. But general manager John Mozeliak, who said he first had learned about the practice from a Post-Dispatch report and photo, said Friday night that he had asked that the practice cease.
“Once we learned of it,” said Mozeliak, “I did contact the grounds crew and just asked that they don’t.
“It’s just not club policy to be putting religious symbols on the playing field or throughout the ballpark. I didn’t ask for the reason behind it. I just asked for it to stop.”
