      Cardinals broadcaster Mike Shannon will hold his first-ever “Twittercast,” taking over @Cardinals for Wednesday night’s game against the Pirates. 

     “While his voice is synonymous with Cardinals baseball, this will be Mike’s social media debut,” said Bill DeWitt III, President of the Cardinals. “This should be a lot of fun as Mike makes the transition from behind the microphone to behind the computer or smart phone for one night to tell the story of the game in 140 characters or less.” 

     During Wednesday’s game versus the Pirates – which is scheduled for 6:05 p.m. in Pittsburgh at PNC Park – Shannon will step away from his play-by-play seat on the Cardinals Radio Network and into Mike Shannon’s Grill in Edwardsville, IL, where he will host the @Cardinals Twitter Takeover. 

      Throughout the game, Shannon will comment on game action, share personal anecdotes, tweet answers to fan questions and more on @Cardinals under the hashtag #MikeShannon. 

      This marks the first time that the Cardinals Twitter account will be taken over by a personality. The first @Cardinals Twitter Takeover occurred earlier this season when fan retweets told the story of the game during the club’s annual Social Media Night at the Ballpark.              Fans are encouraged to join the conversation by submitting their questions for Mike on Twitter by using the hashtag #MikeShannon. 

Shannon has manned the Cardinals broadcast booth since 1972.
