ST. LOUIS (AP) — The rally squirrel has moved on from T-shirts and stuffed animals. The World Series championship rings the St. Louis Cardinals received over the weekend pay homage to the critter that served as a good luck charm last fall. A tiny squirrel appears below the Cardinals logo and just above the player’s number inside a home plate with bats crossed. The Cardinals won two straight to upset the Phillies in the division series after a squirrel scampered across home plate as Skip Schumaker batted against Roy Oswalt.
