A Missouri legislator has pitched a bill that would name the St. Louis Cardinals the official team in the State of Missouri.

Missouri House Rep. Courtney Curtis introduced the bill.

There's not too much language in House Bill 2831. 

The entire bill: 

Section A. Chapter 10, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be
known as section 10.210, to read as follows:

The St. Louis Cardinals, which can trace its history in Missouri back to 1882, are selected for and shall be known as the official baseball team of the state of Missouri.
