Baseball is back in St. Louis as the World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals open the 2007 season on Sunday night, April 1, against the New York Mets. The Cards vanquished the Mets in 7 games in last year's National League Championship Series. Okay, so we stumbled into the playoffs, nearly blowing our division title on the last day, but it was still exciting. In this picture, Jim Edmonds fouls one off against the Detroit Tigers in Game 3 of the Series. Tigers catcher Pudge Rodriguez is behind the plate.
I'll be at the game Sunday night, with pix sure to follow on this blog.
Sports photography is a blast if your equipment can handle it. If I had their e-mail addresses, I could send the people who do the Buenos Aires daily photo blog some good shots I got at a Boca Juniors - Quilmes match at La Bombonera last November.
