Cody's Corner – Special Thanksgiving Edition

A spot on the Cardinals 40-man roster means outfielder Cody Haerther has a lot for which to be thankful, as his primary 2006 goal was achieved. But, he is not stopping there.

I reached Springfield outfielder Cody Haerther on the road just prior to Thanksgiving as he was ending his travels to celebrate the Holiday, as many of us are doing this time of year.

Needless to say, the 23-year-old has even more than usual to be thankful for this season, as earlier this week he was added to the St. Louis Cardinals 40-man roster and received an invitation to his first big league Spring Training camp.

In this exclusive audio interview, Cody discusses how he learned of his promotion, breaks down his uneven 2006 season, how he is preparing for 2007, his past and future skippers, his teammates/competitors and more.
