St Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis established themselves in 1882 as a charter American Association (AA) team, shortened their name to "Browns" the next season, then joined the NL in 1892. They were also known as the "Perfectos" before adopting Cardinals as their official name in 1900. As one of the most decorated and successful franchises in MLB history, St. Louis has won eleven World Series championships, 19 National League pennants, and 12 division titles. Their 11 World Series titles are second only to the New York Yankees' 27. Baseball Hall of Fame inductees include Lou Brock, Dizzy Dean, Gibson, Herzog, Hornsby, Joe Medwick, Musial, Rickey, Red Schoendienst, Ozzie Smith, and Bruce Sutter. Their historic rivalry with the Cubs is one of the most storied in professional sports.

An investment group headed by William DeWitt, Jr. owns the Cardinals, who is the chairman and managing partner. John Mozeliak is the general manager and Mike Matheny is the manager. As of 2013, Forbes valued the Cardinals at $716 million, making them the tenth-most valuable franchise in MLB "in the best single-team baseball market" in the United States.
