The Lucky Squirrels

In the MLB, the St. Louis Cardinals four lucky charms. What is the lucky charm?,you may ask yourself. Well, it's not a four leaf clover or a horshoe. The lucky charms are squirrels. The St. Louis Cardinals captured them and brought them to Busch Stadium as their Rally Squirrels. During their game against the Phillies, the squirrels ran off onto the field. The Cardinals lost that game, 2-3, but in game 4, they started doing their job. Right when the Phillies threw a pitch, a squirrel would run onto home plate. The Phillies complained to the umpire that the squirrel distracted him, but he still declared it a ball. So, the next time you see a squirrel, think about how it might bring you luck.
