St. Louis Cardinals pin

St. Louis Cardinals pin

This pin I got in St. Louis when I attended a meeting of instructors for the Fire Science program at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. We were given $6.00 tickets to Busch Stadium to see a Cards game. I was so impressed at actually being in the stadium. I walked by the statue of Stan Musial (Stan the Man) and shook hands with Enos Slaughter, one of the old Cards I remember from my youth.

Growing up in Western Kentucky the nearest baseball team was the Cards. I listened faithfully to every game on radio, broadcast by Harry Carey (“It might be, it could be, …. IT IS! A HOME RUN!”). I have been a Cards fan since, and hope someday they will get into the world series again.
