St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay is beyond thrilled about the Cardinals appearance in the Fall Classic. The Redbird's remarkable success also helps the city attract NCAA Championships, including basketball. In fact, the St. Louis Sports Commission was in Indianapolis this week working to seal a deal for more exciting events.
But, it's not just about dollar and cents, but improving the city's image. Now, that's something to cheer about.
Join host Shirley Washington for "The Pulse Of St. Louis" Saturday night at 7pm on KPLR to learn more about what the World Series and other major sports events mean to you and the city.
