David Freese yelled at by Rangers fan: 'You ruined my life'


ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - No one in St. Louis will forget what David Freese did in Game 6 of the 2011 World Series. Apparently, neither have Texas Rangers fans.

The former St. Louis Cardinals third baseman and hometown hero shared a hilarious story on Twitter about a run-in he had with a Rangers fan. From the Tweet, it sounds like he's been spending some time in Texas.

He says he was on a walk when a guy drove up next to him – stopped in the middle of the road – and asked: "Hey you David Freese... you ruined my life in high school. Go Rangers!!"

Freese was pretty entertained by the encounter, saying "Texas does have its perks #11in11"

And if anyone forgot what Freese did on Oct. 27, 2011, our Tom Ackerman was ready to remind folks:

And Freese did a lot more for the Cardinals besides his clutch hitting in Game 6. He hit .397 in those playoffs with five home runs and 21 RBI, winning the Babe Ruth Award as the Postseason MVP.

But even if he does continue to get harassed in Texas, he'll never have to pay for a meal again in St. Louis.
