Evangel Product Blake McKnight Returns to Springfield for Route 66 Rumble

SPRINGFIELD, Mo -- If fans can take their eyes off of St. Louis Cardinals players like Kolten Wong, Yadier Molina, and Matt Adams tonight during the Route 66 Rumble, local Evangel product Blake McKnight will be lurking in the bullpen shadows. 

McKnight made his name known after graduating from Evangel University and then being drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013. 

After working his way up through the minor league system, McKnight made his debut with the Springfield Cardinals last year. 

This year, the right-hander made an appearance in the inter-squad Cardinals game in Memphis for 1 inning, and is expected to dress tonight in Springfield.
