(BaseballStL) – St. Louis Cardinals fans have a reputation for being some of the smartest and most welcoming fans in the Major Leagues. That sentiment was echoed by the Boston Red Sox, who on Tuesday took out a full-page ad in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to show their appreciation of the region.
The top of the ad features of a photo of two young fans, one rooting for the Cardinals and the other cheering on the Red Sox.
Below is a message headlined “From One Great Baseball Town to Another.”
“On behalf of our partners and the entire Red Sox organization, thank you St. Louis,” the message read. “The warm Midwestern welcome you extended to our team and our fans during this year’s hard-fought World Series is truly appreciated. Your region, its people and the entire Cardinals organization represent everything that’s great about baseball.”
The letter is signed by Red Sox Owner John Henry, team chairman Tom Werner and president Larry Lucchino.
