The St. Louis Cardinals completed a historic comeback in 1964, leapfrogging six teams to win the pennant after being ten games back with roughly a third of the season to go. The team is being honored today, fifty years after the comeback.
The wrath of Cardinals' fans has certainly been the offense and the manager up to this point in the season, Adam Wainwright and Michael Wacha have anchored the Cardinals staff and turned in the best tandem April in Cardinals' history.
Albert Pujols reached one of baseball's great milestones in hitting 500 home runs, but he did it for another team. Many were bitter when he left St. Louis, but now is a good time to appreciate the player that Pujols was, and hopefully still is.
