ST. LOUIS (AP) — Fans attending this weekend’s interleague series between the Kansas City Royals against the host St. Louis Cardinals will have the chance to touch a bit of history of both teams that squared off in the World Series three decades ago.

The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory’s mobile museum will make its first-ever stop at Busch Stadium for the series that runs today (Friday) through Sunday. The traveling exhibit will include game-used bats from Royals Hall of Famer George Brett and late Cardinals legend Stan Musial. Fans will be allowed to hold the bat that Musial used in 1961.

There’ll also be a bat-making demonstration.

Cardinals and Royals fans show their pride

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Fans of the St. Louis Cardinals and the Kansas City Royals are showing off their memorabilia heading into a high-profile matchup. The Columbia Missourian reports that this weekend could be the second time this year the Interstate 70 rivals will play while first in their divisions if the Royals maintain their one-game lead in the American League Central. The series starts Friday in St. Louis.

The Missourian went in search of fans, photographing 66-year-old Don Boes of Jefferson City in front of memorabilia, some of it from the 1985 World Series. Photographers also captured 55-year-old John Thessen, of Taos, with a collection that includes seats from the old Busch Stadium.

The Cardinals and Royals also had the best records in Major League Baseball when they played in May.

DENVER (AP) — Carlos Martinez pitched efficiently into the seventh inning for a fifth straight start and Randal Grichuk hit a solo homer, helping the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Colorado Rockies 4-2 on Wednesday to avoid a series sweep.

Martinez (7-2) had a shutout until Ben Paulsen’s two-run homer in the seventh. He gave up eight hits in 6 1-3 innings and tied a career-high with two singles at the plate. Martinez also scored a run to help the Cardinals salvage the final game of what’s been a rough series.

St. Louis was outscored 15-6 in the opening two games and had slugger Matt Holliday go on the disabled list with a strained right quadriceps. Chad Bettis (2-1) allowed three runs in five innings as the Rockies finished a 5-5 homestand.

Final preparations for CWS under way at TD Ameritrade Park

June 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Final preparations are being made for the start of the College World Series this weekend. The grounds crew is manicuring the field at TD Ameritrade Park in downtown Omaha and vendors are setting up merchandise tents.

Six of the eight teams have appeared in the CWS since the ballpark opened in 2011. NCAA director of championships and alliances Damani Leech said at a news conference Wednesday “for a lot of the student-athletes it’s their first experience, so we’ll still get to see the wide-eyed, sort of slack-jawed expressions as they come into this stadium for the first time.”

Leech said more home runs and scoring are expected because of the new flat-seam ball. The CWS opens Saturday with Arkansas playing Virginia and Florida meeting Miami.
