Former Beetle Allen Craig gets huge payday
Former Alexandria Beetles player Allen Craig has gone on to be a fixture with one of the more storied franchises in Major League Baseball. Now he will be rewarded for that with a five-year contract.
Craig and the St. Louis Cardinals agreed to a contract extension last week of five years and $31 million. It's a deal that could be worth up to $43 million with the Cardinals having an option that they can pick up for the 2018 season.
