Overview

Heading into the 2011 season's final month, the St. Louis Cardinals had no chance to make the postseason - at least, that's what logic indicated. But by the end of October, they were hoisting the World Series trophy, celebrating the franchise's 11th world championship and its second in six years. All it took was a historic comeback in September, in which the Redbirds rallied from an 8.5-game deficit in the Wild Card race, and an incredible run through the postseason to do it.

On the backs of Cardinals mainstays Albert Pujols and Chris Carpenter, as well as more recent arrivals like Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman, St. Louis took out the heavily favored Phillies in the National League Division Series before outclassing the division-rival Brewers and overmatching the American League champion Texas Rangers.

The Year of the St. Louis Cardinals: Celebrating the 2011 World Series Champions commemorates the Cardinals' thrilling 2011 season, detailing their rise to the top, including a recap of every postseason game they played, regular-season highlights, team history, insider stories, stats and more than 200 photographs. As the only official Major League Baseball World Series championship book, this keepsake is a must-have for any fan of the Cardinals or baseball.
