The 2023 season will soon be upon us.
It’s been a long and boring winter.
But soon, the grass will be greener, and the sun will shine brighter as baseball makes its return.
The team’s top prospect made an appearance in St. Louis at the annual “Winter Warmup.”
Cardinals fans are excited to see him, but so are many others.
And when he came to St. Louis, he brought his own fan club, with his entire family tagging along for the journey.

Among the members of Walker’s fan club were both of his grandmothers.
They were present as he was signing autographs for fans.
That’s certainly one way to hype up your talent.
Those in his family of course know him best and have seen the constant work he has put in to be the best possible player he can be.
If anything, they can attest to what kind of a player he is and what he could bring to the Cardinals.
But he felt it important to introduce his family to such a passionate baseball town, and they had to have liked what they saw.
Now, Walker will look to compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster in 2023.
With plenty of competition in the outfield, he’ll get his chance to make an impression.
And if he makes the team, he’ll have even more reasons to bring his family to St. Louis.
