Rick Ankiel Takes Out a Half Page Ad in the Post-Dispatch

Categories: Cardinals
If you read the Post-Dispatch online then you likely missed the following half-page ad on page C-7 of the sports section today.

Actually can you even call it an ad? It's more like a tribute to St. Louis and the Cardinals from Washington Nationals outfielder Rick Ankiel.

Hard to believe that this week marks the first time Ankiel has returned to St. Louis since he became a free agent following the 2009 season. The picher-turned-outfielder was certainly a fan favorite here in St. Louis. Evidently, the feeling was mutual. Welcome back, Rick!

Rick Ankiel was a fan favorite for a reason. He overcame a lot and the people appreciated it. His father is in prison for drug offenses. This is a feel good story. He "served his time in 'ell" and a lot of fans have gone through the same thing. The Cardinal ownership is an "absentee landlord" and that is the problem.

I really hated to see him go, and this validates that feeling for sure. Thank YOU Rick for being a true professional and gentleman.

Since no one else has said anything, I'll say it: super classy. We may have lost him to another team but it's evident old St. Louis has a permanent place in his heart. Much success!
