Although not Cardinals related, it was important to the game of baseball.
The first known box score appears in the New York Morning News a month after the first set of rules is written by Alexander Cartwright and some his fellow Knickerbockers.
- 2006 The Spiezios become the first father-and-son combination in baseball history to have appeared in a World Series game as a player for the same franchise. Scott, the Cardinals’ current second baseman, and his father, Ed, a third baseman for the 1967 club, both played for in the Fall Classic for winning Redbird teams.
- 2007 Tony La Russa agrees to a two-year contract to continue as the Cardinals manager. During his 12-year tenure in St. Louis, the 63 year-old skipper has compiled a 1,055-887 (.543) record, which includes six Central Division championships, two NL pennants and one World Series Championship.
- 2011 In the Cardinals’ 16-7 rout of the Rangers in Game 3 of the Fall Classic, Albert Pujols hits three homers, drives in six runs and collects five hits, all equaling World Series records. ‘Prince Albert’, who also set a Series mark with 14 total bases, connects on fastballs from three different Texas pitchers, joining Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson for the most round-tippers in a World Series game.
