Wall ball

Reggie Sanders was the Cardinals' designated hitter last night in Game 1. He was replaced in left field by So Taguchi.

It was an interesting choice by La Russa because Taguchi was a defensive substitute most of the season.

First-base coach Dave McKay hit fungos off the Green Monster during Friday's workout so St. Louis players could get used to the way balls bounce off particular areas. The Wall is made of sheet metal, wood and concrete, and there's also a padded portion.
