The Rally Squirrel is a mythical creature, a rodent that appears on baseball cards and on MLB fields at random. Several of these creatures have been spotted in St. Louis and have even appeared on baseball cards. However, the true story behind this little creature is more intriguing.

The Rally Squirrel was created by the Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation and has become a popular mascot of the team. The Cardinals announced that he would be performing at a team rally on October 12 and are printing 40,000 squirrel motif rally towels for the team’s game in the National League Championship Series. The Rally Squirrel has been immortalized with a Topps baseball card, which depicts him running across the batter’s box. The Cardinals have also immortalized him on the team’s World Series rings.
The Rally Squirrel was introduced to the public in 2011 when the team was attempting to win the World Series. The squirrel, who wore a Cardinals jersey, joined Fredbird at pre-game rally events and also helped the team pass out T-shirts. The Rally Squirrel has appeared in many major league baseball games, including the World Series and the 2011 National League Division Series.
He’s immortalized with a Topps baseball card
The Rally Squirrel has been immortalized in a variety of ways. In addition to being immortalized on a Topps baseball card, the Rally Squirrel has been immortalized in a 14 karat white gold ring. The ring features the player’s name and number along with the tiny squirrel running across home plate. This adorable animal has become one of the most popular images of the St. Louis Cardinals. Fans have adopted the image, and the card is sold on merchandise and displayed on stadium screens.
The Rally Squirrel is the secondary mascot of the St. Louis Cardinals and wears a number 11 uniform. It gained worldwide fame after an uninvited squirrel appeared on the field during the 2011 National League Division Series. The squirrel distracted Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Oswalt during a game and the video soon became popular. The card’s release spurred local businesses to produce items featuring the squirrel.
He’s become a beloved icon
The Cardinals have become a favorite among baseball fans, and the Rally Squirrel is no exception. The cute, furry squirrel, dressed in a chipmunk costume, debuted on the field in October 2011 during a game against the Philadelphia Phillies. The squirrel helped the Cardinals win the World Series and has become an icon in and of itself. Although the Rally Squirrel is not a Cardinal, he has become an integral part of the team’s success.
After the wayward squirrel caused a commotion among Cardinals fans, the team decided to incorporate him into their championship ring design. Fans were so enthralled with the iconic squirrel that they have their own social media accounts dedicated to the creature. Several major league baseball teams have also incorporated the squirrel in their team logo. While it is not as popular as the St. Louis Cardinals’ championship rings, the Rally Squirrel remains a beloved icon.
