Many have heard about St. Louis Cardinals, including its successes and failures. However, they do not really understand its real history. This is a famous baseball team located in Missouri and thus got their name St Louis. Their home stadium is called the Busch stadium. It has risen with time and was included in MLB as one of the major teams in Baseball.
The team was founded in the 1880s to be the American Association member, initially known as the St. Louis Brown Stockings. Ten years after their formation they crossed to the National League changing their name to “Perfectos” and later adopted the name Cardinals Officially.
With their dedication they have been able to win 11 World Series title, the most ever for a National League team and are placed second after New York Yankees. They have won 22 league pennants, 18 of which were after they joined the National League. The 18 pennants place them at a tie with the Dodgers for second most among National League clubs. They also rank third overall to the New York Yankees forty appearances.
They were not so successful initially in the National League and it took them three decades to find their feet. Success began after Branch Rickey took over as manager. He invested in new talent that would soon become the future of the team. They won their first world series as a National League team in 1926 after defeating the mighty New York Yankees in seven games.
Their huge success is attributed to their carefully crafted game over these years they have been in existence as well as their willingness to take spending risks. This is a team that has shown dedication al through. It is definitely poised for greater things to come. We can only hope to see the best that this team still has in store.
