That classic World Series featured two of the greatest hitters of all time — Stan Musial for the Cardinals, Ted Williams for the Red Sox — and went the distance, with St. Louis coming out on top in Game 7, 4-3. Let’s hope for another memorable showing this year between two of the most-storied franchises in MLB.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Angels have signed 1B/DH Justin Bour to a contract, pending a physical. The Phillies non-tendered Bour last month.

Bour, 30, spent the 2018 season with the Marlins and Phillies, hitting an aggregate .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 501 plate appearances.

Bour will likely share first base with Albert Pujols, who is coming off of knee and elbow surgeries. Bour could handle right-handers while the 38-year-old Pujols faces lefties.
