Staff Writer & Marketing Associate
Gabe Kiley joined the St. Louis Cardinals in March 2011 as a staff writer and marketing associate for the club's publications department (Cardinals Magazine, Yearbook, Calendar and Scorecard). His byline appears regularly inside Cardinals Magazine with notable articles including a first-hand account as a participant at Cardinals Fantasy Club in 2013, traveling with a Cardinals scout in South Florida in March 2014, providing insightful coverage of the organization's draft classes since 2012 and writing detailed postseason recaps. Gabe also drives several of the department's marketing and business-building initiatives, including overseeing the Cardinals Calendar fall fundraiser program, crafting promotional messages across various platforms, and expanding distribution in the St. Louis metro area.
In addition, Gabe serves a real-time correspondent for Major League Baseball, providing timely photographs, videos and short stories for MLB and its clubs on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, MLB.com and Cardinals.com.
Prior to the Cardinals, Gabe spent 11 years in newspapers and magazines, notably as a reporter/editor for the St. Louis-based Suburban Journals and as managing editor of DECOR Magazine, a national trade publication in the art-and-framing industry. He also has an extensive background as a freelance writer, with articles appearing in various newspapers, magazines and websites.
Gabe's passion for Cardinals' baseball goes back to his childhood, growing up in St. Louis during the 1980s. Watching Whitey Ball and admiring players like Ozzie Smith and Willie McGee, he became accustomed to winning baseball as a young fan. One of the biggest thrills of his life came in 1999 when he was hired by the Cardinals as an intern while attending Webster University. His connection with the Cardinals continued throughout the 2000s as a contributing writer for Cardinals Magazine before joining the club full time in 2011.
An avid photographer, runner and book reader, Gabe's love for travel has taken him to 20 MLB stadiums. He resides in St. Louis with his wife and two daughters.
