David Freese Baseball
October 29, 2011 by staff
David Freese Baseball, David Freese, hometown boy made good, is the MVP of the World Series. Until his final attack in Game 6, the reluctant hero of the Cardinals delivered a game-leveling two-run triple in the ninth inning on Thursday night. Freese then made a better: a home run in the 11 that gave St. Louis a dramatic victory over the Rangers and made the first Game 7 since 2002.
Freese, the National League Championship Series MVP, capped his memorable October, with another great performance on Friday night, reaching a two-run double in the first inning to tie two at all.
Playing solid defense at third base, and drawing a pair of walks that helped lead to runs, Freese was again front and center in a 6-2 victory that ended the Cardinals’ championship 11.
“This means everything,” said Freese.
When the final out was made, Freese raised his arms in the air and rushed the mound, where he joined a scrum happy floated like confetti from the upper reaches of Busch Stadium.
Freese hit .348 in the World Series with seven RBIs, three doubles and a homer large. It is the fourth Cardinals player to win the MVP award, joining Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Gibson in 1964 and ’67, the receiver Darrell Porter in 1982 and David Eckstein in his 2006 victory in Detroit.
“You learn all these veterans about how to get this game and I would not be here without them,” said Freese.
Freese could very well be the MVP of the playoffs completely.
The boy who grew up in a suburb of St. Louis hit three-run homer in Game 6 of the NLCS against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Then came his performance agitation against the Texas Rangers in the Fall Classic.
Often lost in a high-scoring including Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman, Freese left his mark on baseball’s biggest stage of need.
Holliday fought most of the series before injuring his right wrist in Game 6, keeps him out of the list Friday. Pujols was intentionally walked every time it was a threat.
That left the offense to Freese, who had given up baseball after high school, rejecting a scholarship offer from Missouri to be just a college student. He even rejected the Tigers’ coaches when they called me halfway through his first semester to see if she changed her mind.
It was not until about a year out of high school wanting to play finally returned.
Freese gave up and enrolled at St. Louis Community College-Meremec, and the game caught the attention of the coaches in southern Alabama. Freese flourished in the Padres pick in the ninth assault project in 2006, and a change to the Cardinals finally brought him home.
“If you wrote a story like a man traded, returns to his hometown, he’s a hero if sent to the script, it is returned to his face,” said commissioner Bud Selig before the start of Game 7.
This was not a perfect fairy tale, however. That would be too easy.
Necessary Freese season surgery to repair a torn tendon in his right ankle last year and broke his left hand when he was beaten by a pitch earlier this season. He was beaten by another launch in August and suffered a concussion.
Each time, he better than before.
He was at his best against Texas.
In the first World Series game with the score tied in the sixth inning, Freese gave double time. He alertly moved to third on a wild pitch, allowing you to easily record the execution of an eventual winner Craig Allen’s single to right.
Freese scored the Cardinals’ only run in a 2-1 loss in Game 2, and then drove in a pair of runs in the 16-7 victory in Game 3 a performance that will forever be overshadowed by Pujols three homers .
Nobody could outshine Freese in Game 6.
After committing an error when a simple popup bounced off his glove, Freese more than compensated for it with his bat. Until the final blow, the two-run triple in the ninth forced extra innings, and joined the Bill Mazeroski, Carlton Fisk, Joe Carter and Kirby Puckett as the only players to hit a home run to win the game in Game 6 or back of a Fall Classic.
That’s pretty select company.
As the company will enjoy as MVP of the World Series.
