It’s cold outside but spring is getting closer and that means baseball will soon be back on the diamonds in Arizona and Florida. It also means that fans of the St. Louis Cardinals should get ready for the Winter Warm Up - the caravan of current and former players that spreads out over 6 states to talk, shake hands and sign autographs. The team is stopping at 8 towns in Illinois: Champaign, Peoria, Quincy, Mattoon, Decatur, Springfield, Effingham and Carbondale.
