On This Date in Cardinals History: July 11, 1911

On this day 101 years ago the Cardinals were involved in a terrible tragedy. And it nearly was much worse for the club. The Redbirds were riding on a train from Philadelphia to Boston for a series against the Braves when the train on which they were riding derailed near Bridgeport, Conn. It plunged down a deep embankment and when it came to a rest 14 passengers had been killed.
