St. Louis is a fierce baseball city. We're even competitive about how good of fans we are, though others have caught on to our self-ascribed moniker, the best fans in baseball.

Once a season for the last ten years, St. Louis' dogs have gotten in on the action at the annual Purina Pooches in the Ballpark night, showing off their spirit in a pregame pet parade, keeping cool in kiddie pools and cheering on the Redbirds side-by-side with the humans that brought them.

The canine fans must have been good luck. The Cardinals beat the Washington Nationals 4-1.
