Cardinals Monday Motivation: Farewell, Lance Berkman, Edition

With Lance Berkman signing with the Texas Rangers, he’s now officially an ex-Cardinal. And though his career as a Redbird was only 177 regular-season games, he certainly made an impact — especially during the 2011 season, when we here at AMF quickly created the LB Fan Club for the former-enemy-turned-hero.

So, as a tribute, here’s a look at some of our favorite LB photos and moments. (In addition, check out the great stories here.)

Thanks for the memories — and see you back at Busch Stadium with the Rangers on June 21.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And now a video — of what else but LB’s biggest hit as a Cardinal?

 

Which, of course, led to this the next night.

 

Injuries obviously derailed much of the 2012 season for Lance — but he did have a memorable final at-bat.

 

 

Good-bye, Lance — we appreciate and will remember all you did during your time in St. Louis, and we’ll miss your sassy saunter. Best of luck and best of health in the season ahead!

  1. Lance is one of the few players I liked even before he was a Cardinal [very very few]. Love seeing these photos from a happier time. I wish him well, but can’t bring myself to wish his new team well 🙂
