Rally Cat

Timothy Birdnow

They say a black cat crossing your path is bad luck. Well, not when it's the St. Louis Cardinals.

During Wednesdays game the Redbirds were losing when a scruffy black cat appeared in the outfield (as if by magic). Bases were loaded and there were two outs in the sixth inning. Play was halted as a groundsman had to go out and grab the frightened animal (which subsequently scratched and bit the poor kid up). When play resumed the batter hit a grand slam, winning the game for the Cardinals!

They are calling it the Rally Cat.

A woman showed up claiming the cat was hers and she took it before anyone thought to stop her. It's unclear if it really was her cat or if she figured she could sell the critter, but she absconded with Rally Cat and so the mystery continues. What on Earth was a cat doing in the outfield? We may never know.

This is one for the books.

The Cardinals hit another grand slam last night, defeating the Kansas City Royals. This black cat seems to be a lucky one!
