After waiting seven hours on the tarmac at Lambert Airport, the Cardinals are finally on the ground in Boston.
A mechanical problem had grounded the Delta Airlines charter flight that was supposed to take off Tuesday afternoon. Players, coaches and their families had to wait for a new one to be flown in from Atlanta.
While they waited, several players posted good-natured comments on social media. Matt Carpenter tweeted "On the bright side really getting to know my teammates children."
The Cardinals hadn't scheduled any workouts for Tuesday.
The team finally arrived in Boston about 10:00 p.m. St. Louis time.
They'll take on the Red Sox in a must-win World Series Game 6 Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. CDT.
