Some say it was the Rally Squirrel that took the Cardinals over the top this year to win the World Series against the Texas Rangers in seven thrilling games! Game 6 was the standout as the game went into extra innings with the Cardinals eking it out in the 11th here in St. Louis. With 10 1⁄2 games behind on August 25th,no one had given the Cardinals any chance to win the wild card position and even get into post-season play, never mind beat the Phillies, Milwaukee for the pennant, and then Texas to reign once again as world champs. A number of our staff and Residents made it to playoff games at Busch Stadium.
Here staff member Virginia Arnold shows off her brand new World Series T-shirt. The Rally Squirrel T-shirt was raffled off in the Home.
It was all great fun and was the occasion for community building and showing our great sense of pride in our team and our city!
