Tigers Versus Cardinals in World Series
Yadier Molina hit a dramatic home run in the top of the 9th inning last night to lead the Cardinals over the Mets 3-1 in game 7 of the National League Championship. This will be the third time the Tigers have met the Cardinals in the World Series. The Cardinals beat the Tigers 4 games to 3 in 1934 and the Tigers beat the Cardinals 4-3 in 1968. This will be a special series for the Panas family as my father is a Cardinal fan who remembers the 1934 World Series. He also remembers 1968 (my first year as a Tiger fan) and has been waiting 38 years to get his revenge. More on that later. I'll also do my series preview tomorrow night.
