(St. Louis, MO)--Game 1 of the 2011 World Series is just about 24 hours away.

And both teams were at Busch Stadium Tuesday to workout and meet the media.

This is the Texas Rangers first time ever at Busch. 

St. Louis has only played the Rangers three times in franchise history.

Despite being at home, St. Louis could be the underdog.

The Cards got in on the last day of the season.

Texas won 96 games and is making its second straight trip to the Fall Classic.

"Right now we expect to win," said Rangers Manager Ron Washington. "That's the attitude that we have.  And I don't think if you have that attitude that you shouldn't be here in the World Series.  I don't think I can ever live up to matching the wit with Tony La Russa.  What I'll try to do is put my players in the right position."

"Our club is not going to change it's attitude about competiting in the World Series," said Cards Manager Tony La Russa. "I mean the Rangers are going to the best we got.  We're going to have the same approach where we do the best we can.  And treat it like it's the last game you're ever going to play."
