Former Redbirds In The MLB Playoffs


Thirty-three former members of the Memphis Redbirds are currently competing for a World Series championship in the MLB playoffs.

The majority of that group are 26 members of the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals, Memphis’ Major League affiliate. A majority of the Cardinals’ Division Series roster have played in Memphis during their careers, including 12 members of the Redbirds’ 2012 club.

The Cincinnati Reds have two former Redbirds on their roster, while the Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, Washington Nationals, New York Yankees, and Oakland Athletics boast one, with the exception of Kevin Long (Memphis Chicks).

There are no former Redbirds on the postseason rosters of the Atlanta Braves or San Francisco Giants.

Don’t forget to join the Redbirds to watch Game #2 of the 2012 World Series at AutoZone Park on Thursday, October 25. Click here for more information.
