Phil Lindsey, an avid Cardinal fan in Cub country, sent me this great action shot he took of Albert launching the first Cardinal home run in the new Busch Stadium back on April 10, 2006. Bill Hall of the Brewers hit the very first home run earlier in that game, but we’re focusing on El Hombre today. Phil also wrote a haiku to accompany his photo.
Here’s hoping for a similar display of Cardinal power in tonight’s game. Go Cards!
First home run in new
Busch was NOT Albert Pujols.
The second one was.
