Yesterday was an epic day in my baseball world. We went to AutoZone Park to enjoy a Redbirds baseball game, some postgame fireworks and the main attraction, the World Series trophy. The same trophy former manager Tony LaRussa held proudly after the historic 2011 series; that was displayed on the field at Busch Stadium on Opening Day, next to Lou Brock, Bob Gibson and other Cardinal greats.
It represents an incredible comeback triumph, the thrill of watching it unfold and an evening that has come to be known simply as Game Six.
My sister and her family joined us for the game and fireworks, but the real goodness was standing inches from the trophy and reliving those moments together.
