Description
  • Under the Arch that signifies the Gateway to the American West, the St. Louis Cardinals have provided a Gateway to baseball excellence. From Rickey to La Russa, Hornsby to Musial, McGwire to Pujols, the Cardinals have forged a legacy of winning unmatched in the National League... seventeen pennants (most in the senior circuit), ten World Championships, nine Division Titles and thirty-seven Hall of Famers.
  • The St. Louis Cardinals, a professional baseball franchise based in St. Louis, Missouri, compete in the National League of Major League Baseball. The new Busch Stadium has served as their home park since 2006. St. Louis established themselves in 1892 as a charter member of the NL. They were also known as the Perfectos before adopting Cardinals as their official name in 1900. As one of the most decorated and successful franchises in MLB history, the Cardinals have won eleven World Series championships, 19 National League pennants, and 11 division titles. Their 11 World Series championships are second only to the New York Yankees' 27. St. Louis also dominated the AA with four league championships, one pre-World Series championship, and tied another against the NL. Other notable achievements include Branch Rickey's pioneering of the farm system, Rogers Hornsby's two Triple Crowns, Joe Medwick's one Triple Crown, Dizzy Dean's 30-win season, Stan Musial's 17 Major League and 29 NL records, Bob Gibson's 1.12 ERA season, Whitey Herzog's Whiteyball, Mark McGwire breaking the single-season home run record, and the 2011 championship team's unprecedented comebacks.
