ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - The "Saddest Little Cardinal" is ready for October baseball.
Last year, after the Cardinals lost Game 7 of the NLCS to the San Francisco Giants, 4-year-old Cy was devastated. A video of his reaction to the loss went viral logging more than 1.5 million views on YouTube.
Since then, his parents say Cy has become somewhat of a local celebrity with people often recognizing him and asking to pose for pictures.
Cy says he never doubted the Cards would see the playoffs again this year. He got to attend the opening day game and meet Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak, who made a promise to Cy, and so far he's delivering.
"John made sure to take that time with Cy and looked him in the eye and made him a promise, he said 'This year buddy, I'm gonna make you very happy, I promise,'" said Cy's dad, Sam.
