How far would you travel for a World Series replica trophy?
This group of four traveled more than two hours from the small town of Arenzville, Ill., to Busch Stadium on Sunday. Even under damp and cool conditions in St. Louis, the quartet was determined to take home one of the Cardinals' most sought-after giveaways this season.
"As soon as we saw the promotional schedule, we knew that we wanted this trophy," Jansen Joehl said. "We're happy that we made the trip."
Due to popular demand, the club announced a second replica championship ring night for July 6. As the old saying goes: to the victor go the spoils.
