History of the ball in the print

The ball featured in all prints offered on this site is a genuine game-used ball from  the Inaugural Game at Busch Stadium in St. Louis on April 10, 2006.  The game pitted the St. Louis Cardinals against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers.  The Cardinals won that game 6-4 but not without some offensive help from an unlikely source.

In the bottom of the seventh inning pitcher Mark Mulder stepped to the plate with two outs and the Cardinals up 4-2.  Second baseman Aaron Miles was on first after drawing a walk.  Mulder worked the count full before belting a two run homer to center field, becoming the first Cardinal pitcher, and just the second Cardinal (Pujols homered earlier in the third), to homer in the new ballpark.  This ball was fouled off one pitch before the home run.
