Last night, St. Louis Rams’ starting punter Johnny Hekker took over the Cardinals Twitter account. Awesomeness ensued.
Well well well…this may be the first ever MLB tweet by a punter. First person to start the wave gets $5 -JH #HekkerTakeover #GOCARDS— St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals)July 23, 2014

Just moments before tonight’s first pitch, Lex Campaldini set his own Fourth of July fireworks by dropping down on one knee and proposing to Alex Rice.
