Hometown playoff hero joins fellow Champions Bruce and McCollum on Team Blue
The River City Rascals have announced that St. Louis-native and 2019 Stanley Cup Champion Pat Maroon has joined Team Blue for the 2019 STL Legends Game at CarShield Field on Saturday, August 3. Maroon will compete alongside fellow champions Isaac Bruce and Andy McCollum and sign autographs during the VIP Autograph session prior to the game.
Maroon grew up in Oakville, Mo. and played for the NAHL’s St. Louis Bandits before being drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in 2007. After skating for the Flyers, Ducks and Oilers, Maroon returned to St. Louis and signed with the Blues prior to the 2018-19 season. Maroon scored the game-winning overtime goal in the Conference Semi-Finals against the Dallas Stars en route to the team’s first Stanley Cup Championship in franchise history.
The River City Rascals have announced a few others coming to the Legends game:
Former Cardinals pitcher Jason Motte and outfielder Kerry Robinson were added to the 2019 STL Legends Game Roster. The pair joins Cardinals Lance Berkman and Bo Hart who had been announced earlier.
Jason Motte played nine seasons in Major League Baseball, including spending six with the Cardinals and also spent time with the Chicago Cubs, Colorado Rockies and Atlanta Braves. Motte recorded the final out of the Cardinals 2011 World Series run before being installed as the team’s primary closer in 2012 where he made a league-leading 42 saves. Motte posted a career 3.30 ERA, 60 saves and 375 strikeouts in 397 2/3 innings pitched.
St. Louis-native Kerry Robinson spent seven seasons in MLB, including three years with the Cardinals. Robinson was part of two Cardinals Central Division title winning teams in 2001 and 2002. He began his professional career as a 34th round draft pick of the Cardinals before being traded to and making his MLB debut with Tampa Bay in 1998. Robinson is most-remembered by Cardinals fans for his game-winning, walk-off home run against the Cubs in 2003.
