ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Carpenter took a break from the teams six game winning streak to do a little good on Friday. 

Carpenter surprised teachers at Parkway West Middle School and Henry Elementary School.

Carpenter said he has a special place in his heart for teachers.

"It hits home especially for me ... I know what this lifestyle looks like, it can be a thankless job sometimes," Carpenter said. 

Carpenter and Academy Sports did not come empty handed, either.

Teachers were given gift cards and Cardinals gear.
