This makes no sense whatsoever.
Freese was voted by fans online to be inducted, but Saturday, the Cardinals announced that Freese withdrew his candidacy after he notified the team of his decision to do so.
Named the MVP of both the 2011 World Series and National League Championship Series, Freese knocked three home runs in St. Louis’ NLCS win against the Milwaukee Brewers. In the World Series taking on the Texas Rangers, Freese racked up seven RBI, and in Game 6, he was the hero hitting the walk-off home run. And he followed that up with two RBI in Game 7.
Here is the complete statement from Freese about his decision to decline being inducted into the Cards’ Hall of Fame:

This is just weird, man. He outright declines to be inducted, but doesn’t give a reason whatsoever.
And screw what he says, I have an opinion.
Thank you to all the people
