Rick and Seth Minter made the trek to St. Louis for Sunday's NLDS opener to spend time together and share their love for the Cardinals.
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (WGEM) -- For many in the tri-states, a voyage to St. Louis and to what many call 'Baseball Heaven' is special.
Whether it's your first experience, or your 100th time, it never seems to get old.
And that's exactly what it means for a father and son who are separated by 100 miles.
Rick Minter lives in Lancaster, Missouri and his son, Seth, calls Macomb home.
The Minter's make it a tradition to make it down to at least one Cardinal game every year and for them there was no better time than October.
"It's crazy, Friday night I'm watching the game in Macomb and he's watching the game at his house in Lancaster, Missouri and he texted me after the game and said, 'Hey I've got tickets in (Section) 147. You want to go?'" Seth said.
For Rick, there's no place he would rather be.
"My first game in St. Louis, I believe I was 9 years old," he explained.
"I've got some age on me yet. The ballparks have changed and the players have changed but it's still Cardinal baseball, and it's pretty awesome. Once you're a Cardinal fan it's hard not to be a Cardinal fan."
