Images From One Of The Greatest Baseball Games Of All Time

Last night’s World Series game was among the greatest ever played. Though the baseball was sloppy the drama was exquisite. It’s rare that you can say that in sports without being hyperbolic. This is one of those times. Here is the story told in amazing pictures.

Let me start by saying that every one of these games between the Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals has been awesome. This has been an amazing series that should serve as a tremendous commercial for the game of baseball and help to create a whole new generation of fans. Unfortunately the games start so late that no kids were awake to see the magic. Great job MLB.
