Former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Al Hrabosky, known as the “Mad Hungarian,” and Cardinals mascot Fredbird presented the “Doin’ It Right” program to elementary students at both Brownstown and St. Elmo on Tuesday, March 28.
The free program is sponsored by Fox Sports Midwest and presents a positive message about the importance of a participatory and drug-free life. The 50-minute program included videos, prizes, crowd participation, and humor.
Students were taught to stay in school, participate in athletics, and say “no” to drugs. In addition, they were taught how to live an active life, make healthy food choices, and the dangers of drug use.
The Cardinals duo visited Brownstown Elementary in the morning and St. Elmo Elementary in the afternoon.
