If you’ve been to Busch III recently (I was there last Saturday, not sure how long prior to then these have been showing) you’ve seen the video below of children re-enacting notable Cardinal home runs, most from playoff games. There is also a shorter commercial version that I’ve been told has been running on television in the St. Louis area promoting post-season tickets. I think they’re just wonderfully done, and maybe it’s because I’m a dad now and get sappy about things like this. Maybe you should just watch anyway.
First, the Busch III scoreboard version:
St. Louis Cardinals – Homerun Heroes – Scoreboard Spot from Pounds Media on Vimeo.
And the shorter television spot:
St. Louis Cardinals – Homerun Heroes – Television Commercial from Pounds Media on Vimeo.
And NOW, for extra credit, the actual versions of those home runs are below. You knew what all of them were, right?
There’s Ozzie Smith…
Then Jim Edmonds…
And of course, the hometown hero, David Freese…
Looking forward to this afternoon’s tilt. Go Cards.
