Cardinals http://news.stlpublicradio.org en Mayor Slay: Cardinals Bring Economic Boost, Civic Pride To St. Louis http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/mayor-slay-cardinals-bring-economic-boost-civic-pride-st-louis <p>As the Cardinals excel on the field, so too does the city and region around it. Postseason action has almost become a way of life in St. Louis, bringing added excitement, tourism and tax dollars to the region,&nbsp; 10 out of the past 13 years.</p><p>And this year is no different, says Mayor Francis Slay. With three World Series games scheduled here, the region will gain an estimated $8 million in direct and indirect revenue per game. The city alone will gain $500,000 in taxes per game.</p> Wed, 23 Oct 2013 20:53:22 +0000 Camille Phillips 30877 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Mayor Slay: Cardinals Bring Economic Boost, Civic Pride To St. Louis Remembering The 1946 World Series - The First Time The Cardinals Beat The Red Sox http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/remembering-1946-world-series-first-time-cardinals-beat-red-sox <p>A lot has changed in the world of baseball since 1946. But a familiar pair of elite teams are once again playing in the Fall Classic.&nbsp; For the fourth time, the St. Louis Cardinals are facing off against the Boston Red Sox in the World Series. Previous matchups took place in 1946, 1967 and 2004.</p><p>And this year's matchup has some striking similarities to the team's first meeting in 1946. Then, as now, St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Dodgers in playoffs before facing off against the Red Sox.</p> Wed, 23 Oct 2013 16:15:45 +0000 Sarah Skiöld-Hanlin & Camille Phillips 30871 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Remembering The 1946 World Series - The First Time The Cardinals Beat The Red Sox It's Cardinals Opening Day In St. Louis! http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/its-cardinals-opening-day-st-louis <p>Baseball-mad St. Louis is welcoming the Cardinals for the first home game of the year.</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">After starting the season with six road games, the Cardinals host the Cincinnati Reds this afternoon.</span></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The usually festive occasion in St. Louis is a little melancholy this season.
