Most people reading this are award of what happened in 2011; how the Cardinals chased down the Braves in the standings to make it into the post season; how they fended off the Phillies with a game five showdown for the ages; how David Freese became a hero and then a legend with two cracks of the bat.

But just because you know the story already does not mean you wouldn’t want to hear it again, right? SB Nation Studios rewinds from the bottom of the eleventh inning in Game Six of the 2011 World Series and unpacks how we all got to this moment. I got goosebumps.

Sometimes things are just meant to be, ya know?
