Jack Buck delivers memorable speech following 9/11
We shall never forget. pic.twitter.com/crD2Wd9mLO— St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals) September 11, 2016
Fifteen years ago on September 11, 2001 tragedy struck the United States when two passenger airlines were hijacked and flown into the World Trade Center in New York City. It was an act of terrorism, one unprecedented in its scope and devastation. The world was in shock. The country grieved. 2,977 innocent lives were lost. Following the attacks many people said many things about the spirit of America, the undying will of its people spanning back from its foundation, its unwillingness to cower down in the face of adversity and hardship. Patriotism was at an all-time high and that was what the country needed. We leaned on each other and somehow we have made through. The baseball world was not immune to the grief following the tragedy of 9/11, but after a brief hiatus, it too marched on. When baseball resumed, the Cardinals Hall of Fame broadcaster Jack Buck delivered this poem. The moment was poignant, beautiful, and perfect. Jack Buck always knew what to say.
happy birthday waino!
Happy birthday to everyone's favorite tall right-handed Georgian!

It happened eleven years (!!!) ago Sunday, August 7.
On this day in 2011... - A Hunt and Peck
En route to the team's eleventh World Series championship, the Cardinals defeated the Brewers in the NLCS.
A 1988 pre-draft scouting report of Jim Edmonds
This Angels' scout had a good grasp of Edmonds' hitting, but I'd say he significantly missed on his throwing and fielding.
*Cardinals Pennant Race: Almost over in 2011
On August 24, 2011, the Cardinals' season appeared to be over. They would play out the string, but would fail to reach the playoffs in consecutive years. Instead they came back.
The Cardinals' comeback of 1964
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.
*Wainwright and Wacha: Tandem aces of April
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.
*Appreciating Albert Pujols from afar
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.
