JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Here’s a story sure to get the blood of all Royals fans boiling, and make Cards fans giddy. A bill in the Missouri House of Representatives would make the St. Louis Cardinals the state’s official baseball team.

Representative Allen Curtis from MO district 73, which covers portions of North St. Louis County, introduced the bill, which is as simply worded as it is incendiary.

House Bill 2831 proposes an amendment to Missouri's Revised Statues by adding the following language. 

The St. Louis Cardinals, which can trace its history in Missouri back to 2 1882, are selected for and shall be known as the official baseball team of the state of Missouri.

According to the House of Representatives’ website, the bill has been read twice. A hearing has not been scheduled and the bill is not on the house calendar.
