Family holds key to Cardinals success in World Series
PERRY, IL (WHDH) -- An Illinois family thinks it may hold the key to a World Series victory for the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Cardinals have won a world series every year a baby has been born in their family for the past 30 years, and they are very passionate fans.
In 1982 the mother was induced just days before the Cardinals won the World Series so that her husband and doctor could watch the game.
"When we got to the hospital, the doctor and my husband were about to have a fit, because the Cardinals were playing in the World Series and heaven forbid, they couldn't be in labor with me. So they had to get me going and luckily I had the baby before the ballgame that evening,” said Sarah Lipcaman, mother.
Since then the family had a set of twins in 2006 and a son born in 2011. Their fourth son was born earlier this month, and the family is hoping history repeats itself.
