Local NH Boy Does Good

When SI announced the 50 greatest athletes from NH, I don't know if Chris Carpenter, a starting pitcher on the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals was even on the list. Well, at this point, he should be in the top ten.

According to Promo Extra: "WHEATIES will put Chris Carpenter, pitcher for the World Series champs St. Louis Cardinals, on the front of cereal boxes that will hit store shelves nationally in two or three weeks. It's Carpenter's first appearance on a Wheaties box, part of the General Mills' brand's longstanding tradition of featuring top athletes with commemorative packaging."

I remember senior year in high school that local scouts and coaches knew he would be in the major league since his stuff was filthy back then.

Always have to be impressed when a NH athlete gains national exposure.
