David Freese, the main player of the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame, refused to enter the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame.
“The Athletic” of the U.S. said on the 18th (Korea Standard Time) that “Preeze was selected as the Cardinals Hall of Fame inductee in 2023 through a fan vote, but he refused to enter the club’s Hall of Fame.”
Freese, who was traded from San Diego to the st. Louis Cardinals in 2007, made his big league debut in 2009. He had a batting average 먹튀검증 of 0.286 on-base percentage and 0.356 slugging percentage in 466 games over the past five years. In particular, he won the 2011 Championship Series and the World Series MVP, leading the team to the World Series title.
Freeze’s performance, who hit a two-run triple in the ninth inning of Game 6 and a solo home run in the 11th inning of extra time during the World Series against Texas, is still being talked about.
Freeze said he was “aware of his contribution to the team, but it was something he thought hard about even before the vote began. This honor means more to me than this,” he said. “I know how others will feel about my decision. “We will accept this,” he said.
Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt III said: “I respect his decision and hope he can celebrate his career in a different way. He will always be welcomed at Bush Stadium.”
