St. Louis Cardinals Details
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals have played in the National League since 1892. They were called the St. Louis Browns for their first 15 NL seasons and spent 1899 as the St. Louis Perfectos before they became the Cardinals in 1900.
Based on total World Series wins, the Cardinals are the most successful team in the National League. Their 11 World Series titles are more than any other NL team and second only to the New York Yankees. The Cardinals’ most recent World Series title came in 2011, after a Game 7 victory over the Texas Rangers. In addition to their 11 World Series wins, the Cardinals have also won 19 NL Pennants.
The Cardinals played a major role in fueling baseball’s popularity during the 1990s. Cardinals’ first baseman Mark McGwire was part of a two-player race to beat Roger Maris’s long-standing, single-season record of 61 home runs. Sammy Sosa, the other central figure in the race, played for the Chicago Cubs — the Cardinals’ biggest rivals. Though both players ultimately broke Maris’s record, it was McGwire who “won” the race: he hit his 62nd home run of the season against Sammy Sosa and the Chicago Cubs (coming into the game, Sosa had 58 home runs). McGwire finished the season with 70 home runs, which set a major league record that has since been broken by Barry Bonds.
In 2017, the Cardinals finished with a winning record (83-79) and finished third in the NL Central, four games behind the Colorado Rockies for the second NL wild card spot. They had not missed the playoffs two seasons in a row since the 2007 and 2008 seasons.
Rookie Paul DeJong, who debuted with the Cardinals in May and played just 108 games in 2017, led the team with 25 home runs. On the mound, Carlos Martinez represented the Cardinals at the All Star Game and led the team with 12 wins and 217 strikeouts. New outfielder Marcell Ozuna, who had a breakout year for the Marlins in 2017, will be a welcome addition to the lineup, and the Cards should have the pieces in place to make a playoff run in 2018.
The Cardinals’ home ballpark is Busch Stadium.
