Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"This one was for team pride, but it was also for the new guys and the castoffs. As the (2006 St. Louis) Cardinals celebrated their third straight National League Central championship, the festivities were doubly sweet for the nine men who had never popped champagne in a Major League clubhouse." - Sportswriter Matthew Leach on MLB.com (10/02/2006)
