Home Run! Laborers Local 42 member catches Jordan Walker’s first home run ball

St. Louis Congratulations to Duane Reed, retired Laborers Local 42 member, who caught Jordan Walker’s first Big League home run for the St. Louis Cardinals on April 5 at Busch Stadium, when the Cards faced off against the Atlanta Braves. Reed, a regular at the ballpark, says he’s caught a few fouls on bounces over the years, “but never an important one.” Reed has been a member of the Laborers since 1978. Prior to Local 42, he was a member of the former Laborers Local 53. He retired in 2011. – Photo courtesy of Duane Reed
