ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The champion Boston Red Sox are saying thank you to fans - of their World Series opponents.
The Red Sox took out a full-page ad in Tuesday's St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Under a large photo of two boys - one in Cardinals clothing, the other in a Red Sox jersey and cap - the heading reads, ''From one great baseball town to another.''
The ad lauds the ''warm Midwestern welcome'' extended to the Red Sox and Boston fans. It reads, ''Your region, its people, and the entire Cardinals organization represent everything that's great about baseball.''
The ad is signed by Red Sox owner John Henry, chairman Tom Werner and CEO Larry Lucchino.
The Red Sox beat St. Louis in six games to win their third World Series in nine years.
