Red Sox Take Out Full-Page Newspaper Ad, Thank Cardinals Fans for Sportsmanship
Ron Watermon, director of public relations for the Cardinals, says the ad just proves that the Red Sox are a "first-class organization." He notes, too, that there's truth in the advertising.
"I was in Boston for Game 6 and I had a couple fans come up to me and shake my hand and tell me what a wonderful trip they had to St. Louis and how great our fans were."
Watermon adds that after Boston swept St. Louis in 2004, Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. wrote a letter the Boston Globe congratulating the city on its first World Series title in 86 years.
