Edmonds may come back with Cardinals

Posted:

ST. LOUIS (KWWL) - Jim Edmonds went on stage at St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa's charity event to ask for a tryout.

The 39-year-old outfielder did not play last season but never retired. La Russa said Edmonds began text-messaging him about a comeback the day before Sunday's Animal Rescue Foundation event in St. Louis and at first thought it was a joke.

La Russa says he got more texts from Edmonds during the event asking if he could come on stage, where he asked for another shot.

La Russa says he'd meet with the front office to see what money the team has to spend. The team has a need for outfield depth.
