Five years later, Freese's Game 6 triple ball finally found

The ball Freese hit to tie Game 6 7-7 in 2011 has been found - and is up for auction.

Arguably the most heart-stopping moment in Cardinals history is the David Freese triple in Game 6 of the 2011 World Series.

With the Cardinals down to their final strike, David Freese burned the Rangers with a two-run triple over the head of Nelson Cruz in right field.

The ball that Freese hit was missing for five years, but was recently found. How it was found is one of the more remarkable stories you will hear.

With the help of photographer and editor Tony Chambers, Frank Cusumano has the story of the ball found by two collectors.
