The St. Louis Cardinals 2001 season was the team's 120th season in St. Louis, Missouri and the 110th season in the National League. The Cardinals went 93-69 during the season and finished tied for first in the National League Central division with the Houston Astros. Because the best two teams in the National League were both from the Central Division and both the Cardinals and Astros finished five games ahead of the third-place Chicago Cubs, the Astros were awarded the NL Central champion and the number one seed in the playoffs due to winning the season series 9–7, and the Cardinals were seeded as the wild-card.[1]

The Cardinals falsely claim the NL Central Division co-champions, which the Astros rightly won by rule.[citation needed]

In the playoffs the Cardinals lost to the eventual World Champion Arizona Diamondbacks 3 games to 2 in the NLDS.

Third baseman/Outfielder Albert Pujols won the Rookie of the Year Award this year, batting .329, with 37 home runs and 130 RBIs. Second baseman Fernando Viña and outfielder Jim Edmonds won Gold Gloves in 2001.

This was also Jack Buck's final season as the team's broadcaster.

St. Louis finished tied with Houston in 2001, but the Astros won the division based on head-to-head record while the Cardinals won the wild-card berth. Still, St. Louis tried to claim it was division co-champion, a position the commissioner's office rejected.
