Eckstein comes back to Busch | News

Eckstein comes back to Busch News: "For the first time since he parted ways with the Cardinals, David Eckstein made a nostalgic return to Busch Stadium on Monday. Long before the gates had opened, the 2006 World Series hero, now on the Diamondbacks, was trying to imagine how he would feel playing before fans who meant so much to him while he wore the Cardinal colors.

'The fans here are definitely classy fans,' Eckstein said. 'I know my response will be that I'm just very happy to see them.'"

... Forty-thousand-plus at Busch Stadium show their appreciation to the former Cardinals who won the MVP for the 2006 World Series squad.
