A week ago I shared with you the new cover of the Cardinals Magazine featuring Carlos Martinez and butterflies. Even earlier than that, I shared an Instagram photo from Carlos Martinez while at the Butterfly House. As suspected, these two events were related. Stan McNeal of the St. Louis Cardinals Magazine shares the story on Carlos Martinez being forty-five minutes early, the butterflies loving him, and posing for selfies:
Butterfly House had agreed to open during its off hours to allow Cardinals Magazine to do a photo shoot with Carlos for the cover of an upcoming issue...
When the staffers from the Butterfly House asked him to pose with them for photos, Carlos did so and then returned the request and asked if he could take a selfie with them (which he posted on his Instagram account). He also wondered when he might be able to return and bring his two young sons, Kenny and Kevin, who had started pre-school that morning and were unable to make the visit.
The whole story is great and just peak Carlos. Check out the article for more about Carlos's trip! The full feature story will be available in Cardinals Magazine.
