With one of Major League Baseball’s most heated rivalries, the Chicago Cubs vs. St. Louis Cardinals, starting this Friday, Babyfans.com offers parents and their children with ways to show support for their home town teams. From Cubs authentic toddler Alfonso Soriano jerseys and dripless sippy cups, to Cardinals baby sleeper and Albert Pujols infant jerseys, Baby Fans allows Midwest families to outfit their children in their favorite team’s gear.
“With State Route I-55 connecting St. Louis to Chicago, I’m sure plenty of Cardinals fans will be making the trip to the Windy City for this weekend’s match up,” said President of Baby Fans, Todd Wilson. “We’re excited to be offering families a way to get involved in showing support for teams during this historic series.”
Fans speculate that the economic trade rivalry between the cities of Chicago and St. Louis spurred the formation of the St. Louis Brown Stockings in order to compete with the Chicago White Stockings in the late 1800’s. The teams’ first matchup in 1885 ended in a dispute with no winner.
Since then, the Cubs have faced the Cardinals more than 2,000 times, and Baseball Hall of Famers like Roger Hornsby and Ernie Banks passed the torch to stars like Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa, and now Albert Pujols and Alfonso Soriano keep this tradition alive. In turn, generations of families have passed down the importance of supporting their favorite team for this epic battle between two of the Midwest’s biggest cities.
