Join Raines for a book from 1-2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Saint Louis University Museum of Art. Books are available for purchase for $14.95.
In addition to the Wild Cards book signing, the museum is currently exhibiting In Motion: Sports Photography by Lew Portnoy. The exhibition features more than 75 images of some of the world's most famous athletes at their best. Portnoy's photography
Portnoy's photographs suspend for eternity the searing defiance of Muhammad Ali, the deft delivery of a Popovich kick, the unleashed elation of the Cardinals mobbing Ozzie Smith as he leaps toward home plate, trailing echoes of Hall of Fame broadcaster, Jack Buck: "Go crazy, folks! Go crazy!"
All photography contained in the exhibition is available for silent auction and will benefit Cardinal Care. The St. Louis Cardinals Community Relations department and the team's non-profit foundation, Cardinals Care are dedicated to caring for underprivileged children. The mission statement is achieved through numerous programs supported by St. Louis Cardinal players, coaches, staff, volunteers, sponsors, and especially Cardinal baseball fans. Thanks to the support of so many, since its inception in 1997, Cardinals Care has distributed more than $14 million dollars to support organizations throughout the St. Louis area.
