Cards Visit Nation's Capital
The World Champions were in Washington for the traditional champions' privilege of visiting President Bush. The president of course is a big baseball fan, and formerly owned the Texas Rangers.
He paid tribute to the Redbirds success, and singled out shortstop David Eckstein in particular, saying, "Let me say something about the MVP, they said he couldn't hit, they said he couldn't throw, listen, David, I've made a career out of people underestimating me."
Pitchers and catchers report for the Cardinals on February 14th in Jupiter, FL for spring training.
