The St. Louis Cardinals! Just those words give us chills here at SaintLouisSports. The Cardinals have one of the proudest traditions in all of Major League Baseball. The baseball team in our favorite city dates all the way back to 1882, as the Brown Stockings. 11 World Series titles; second most only to the New York Yankees. The Cardinals have those 11 titles, but have been in the big dance in October 18 times. From Ned Cuthbert, to Doggie Miller to Rogers Hornsby to Red Schoendiest, all the way to Whitey Herzog, Joe Torre and Tony LaRussa. There is not one moment in St. Louis Cardinals history that does not go unnoticed here at Saint Louis Sports.
The Cardinals have numerous players that have been inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. Lou Brock, Dizzy Dean, Bob Gibson, Whitey Herzog, Stan Musial, Red Schoendiest, Enos Slaughter, Ozzie Smith and Bruce Sutter. This organization is about more than just Hall of Fame players, as they have had a history of great front office members, and also announcers. The Cardinals are signified by Jack Buck, who was a Ford C. Frick winner for many years. Buck passed away a decade ago, and St. Louis has never been the same since.
The Cardinals have called many places home. Today, you cannot find a better venue to watch Major League Baseball than Busch Stadium. Since created in 2006, the Cardinals have celebrated two World Series titles on the field. The most recent, in 2011, will go down as one of the best comebacks of all time in Major League Baseball. The 2006 team was noted as one of the most surprising, as they barely made their way into the postseason, and then took care of a very stellar Detroit Tigers team. The very first stadium that the Cardinals played in was Sportsman’s Park. Following that, the Cardinals played at Robison Field, which then later changed to Cardinal Field, League Park and then Sportsman Park II. Later. It became Sportsman Park III, which then turned to Busch Stadium I. From 1966 – 2005, the Cardinals played at Busch Stadium II.
