We’re getting awfully close to the beginning of the baseball season, and I am very excited. Honestly, the baseball part of my excitement is almost secondary to the fact that I’ll finally have brand new 2020 baseball things to write. But we’re not quite there yet. As exciting as it is for me to talk about exhibition games (it’s not), I’ll instead focus on a game I remember watching live. And the reason I picked this particular game is because it happened on July 20th, 2004.
Ah, the 2004 baseball season. Easily the greatest Cardinals team in my lifetime, even though they don’t have a ring to show for it.
