History

The St Louis Cardinals are a MLB team based in St. Louis, Missouri. The Cardinals compete in Major League Baseball as a member team of the National League Central division. Busch Stadium has been their home ballpark since 2006. With origins as one of the oldest professional baseball teams in St. Louis, Chris von der Ahe purchased a barnstorming team in 1881, then known as the Brown Stockings, and established them as charter members of the American Association in the following season. Upon the discontinuation of the AA, St. Louis joined the National League in 1892, at that time, they were called the Browns and the Perfectos before they were officially renamed as the Cardinals in 1900. One of the most successful teams in baseball history, the Cardinals have won 11 World Series championships, the second-most in MLB just behind the New York Yankees, and the most in the National League. Their 19 National League pennants rank 3rd in NL history. Also, St. Louis Cardinals has won 13 division titles in the East and Central divisions. While still in the American Association, St. Louis won 4 league championships, qualifying them to play in a forerunner of the World Series. They tied in 1885 and won outright in 1886, both times against Chicago, in the first meetings of the Cardinals vs Cubs rivalry that continues to this day.
