The postseason is fast approaching, and the St. Louis Cardinals look to be one of the teams that we’ll see playing October baseball this year.
The Cardinals have made it to the postseason three straight years, reaching the NLCS in 2019 and falling short in the Wild Card round in 2020 and 2021.
Last season, Nolan Arenado, who had been acquired from the Colorado Rockies, got to experience his first postseason as a member of the Cardinals.
Unfortunately, the Cardinals were in Los Angeles and got eliminated after just that one game.
This time, with expanded playoffs and a Wild Card series, Arenado gets a chance to experience October baseball in front of the fans at Busch Stadium.

Arenado Gets A New Experience
This has to be exciting for Arenado.
He never got what he wanted out in Colorado.
But now, as a member of the Cardinals, he has a chance to play in front of an emotionally charged fanbase in St. Louis for the first time, assuming the Cardinals stay the course and reach the postseason.
The postseason is always one of the most exciting times of the year in St. Louis.
Fans decked out in red head to toe file into Busch Stadium and create an atmosphere unlike any other in sports.
Arenado will finally experience that given the Cardinals manage to reach the playoffs.
Cardinals fans always bring the energy and excitement to every postseason game.
Busch Stadium will be ready to go as it hosts its first postseason game since 2019.
You can bet that it’ll be a nice sea of red for the first game of the Wild Card series.
Arenado and the Cardinals will feed off of that as they try and win their 12th World Series title.NEXT: The Cardinals Have Seen Enough Of Nolan Gorman For Now
