Former St. Louis Cardinal's catcher Hal Smith has died. Edwards Funeral Home in Fort Smith, Arkansas says he died Saturday at age 82. Smith first signed with the Cardinals in 1949. He played for the Redbirds from 1956-61 and was named to three National League All-Star teams. He later played briefly for Pittsburgh in 1965 before becoming a scout and coach for several teams. He's survived by his wife and three adult children.
After waiting seven hours on the tarmac at Lambert Airport, the Cardinals are finally on the ground in Boston.
A mechanical problem had grounded the Delta Airlines charter flight that was supposed to take off Tuesday afternoon. Players, coaches and their families had to wait for a new one to be flown in from Atlanta.
While they waited, several players posted good-natured comments on social media. Matt Carpenter tweeted "On the bright side really getting to know my teammates children."
The Cardinals hadn't scheduled any workouts for Tuesday.
The team finally arrived in Boston about 10:00 p.m. St. Louis time.
They'll take on the Red Sox in a must-win World Series Game 6 Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. CDT.
Law enforcement officials are reminding fans and visitors to St. Louis to secure any valuables in their car by placing them out of sight and locking their doors.
St. Louis police and the Cardinals are committed to ensuring a safe 2013 World Series experience, but they will need an assist from the public.
The Redbirds and Boston Red Sox play Games 3, 4 and 5 on Saturday, Sunday and Monday at Busch Stadium.
Officers will patrol in both uniform and undercover capacities -- in both marked and unmarked vehicles. They will also have more foot and mounted patrols.
Police are encouraging anyone who sees suspicious activity to alert a nearby officer or call 911.
There will be a pre-game pep rally at Ballpark Village beginning at 3:30 each afternoon and the gates to the stadium will open at 4:30 each day.
With their first Central Division title since 2009, and the best record in the National League, the St. Louis Cardinals have home field advantage when the National League Division Series starts Thursday. The Cardinals will take on familiar rivals, the Pittsburgh Pirates at Busch Stadium.
Fans are expected to flock to downtown St. Louis for a pregame pep rally on the Ballpark Village parking lot. That gets underway at 1:00 p.m. The rally will feature appearances by former Cardinal pitcher Andy Benes, Fredbird, the Budweiser Clydesdales and the 2011 World Series Trophy.
The Busch Stadium gates open at 2:00 p.m. And the game gets underway about 4:00.
This is the team's tenth appearance in the postseason since 2000.
Some St. Louis cable TV customers may be disappointed Friday when they try to tune in to watch the Cardinal's second NLDS game against the Pirates. That's because it won't be available for most customers with basic cable.
The 1:00 p.m. game will air on MLB Network, which isn't available to everyone. Charter customers will need a cable box and the select tier or higher subscription. AT&T subscribers with the two highest-level tiers get MLB. DirectTV customers must have a choice tier or better to see the game. And Dish Network subscribers will need at least a top 200 package or a separate sports package.
