Ah, baseball season. Nothing beats the smell of that fresh green grass at Busch Stadium and the taste of ballpark food. To kick off one of the most exciting times of the year for our city, we created the ultimate Cardinals quiz. It will test your knowledge of all kinds of Redbird trivia: history, mascots, stats, and everything in between. St. Louisans have been called the best fans in baseball, so let’s see if we know our Cards as well, as we cheer for them.
