McCaskill congratulates St. Louis Cardinals on historic World Series victory

February 23, 2012

Claire took to the Senate Floor to congratulate the St. Louis Cardinals on their historic World Series win. She commended them on their hard work and determination, especially during their come-from-behind victory in Game Six of the seven game series.
Video Rating: 4 / 5 When the playoffs began, almost no one would have picked the St. Louis Cardinals to make it to the World Series, much less beat the Texas Rangers. But they proved everyone wrong in Game 3 when Albert Pujols knocked three out of the park and batted six other Cardinals in for runs. Then in Game 6, the Rangers started celebrating a little bit too early when they were a pitch away from winning. That was before David Freese’s game-winning homer. St. Louis won Game 7 by a score of 6 to 2. Many say this was the most compelling World Series in a decade. With an outcome as surprising as this, who can say what will happen next year?
