The World Series: David Freese/St. Louis Cardinals

David Freese hits the winning homerun and the St. Louis Cardinals win the 2011 World Series! Considered one of the greatest World Series games, it was an “epic 11-inning battle between St. Louis and the Texas Rangers."

Down 3-2 in the series, the Cards needed a home victory to force a seventh and deciding game. Trailing 7-5, down to their last strike with two runners on base, third basemen David Freese is at the plate!

Ranger fans were ready to celebrate. But Freese sent the next pitch for a two-RBI triple. Freese, stone-faced at third base, looked as shocked as everyone else at what had just happened!

Later, he said that he stays calm by turning to his favorite Bible passage: Psalm 23, a passage he’d read on a bad day or facing a stressful situation—embracing strength and peace from its words!
