Former St. Louis Community College baseball player Andrew Reidt’s childhood dream came true through seemingly in the blink of an eye.

Reidt, a 6-6 right-handed pitcher, made the most of a tryout with a scout for the St. Louis Cardinals, made possible by his former STLCC coach Scott Goodrich, on June 17. A day later, Reidt signed a contract and by June 20 was a member of the Cardinals’ affiliate in the Gulf Coast League.

Following are links to two stories that detail Reidt’s journey to Florida.
