DL: What was it like to play in St. Louis?
BR: Traditional, I want to say. The park plays fair; it’s a good surface. Of course, I’m always wishing the fence is brought in a bit, because I’ve got that warning track power. But it was a wonderful place to play; it’s classic.
The fans are there for baseball. They’re not there for the pool in right-center field, or some of the distractions you’ll find in other places. They’re there with scorebooks in hand and know what’s going on. When you move a guy over, they know you sacrificed yourself. They applaud a nice play.
