Shelby Miller inducted into Cardinals bullpen with 'Fall of Trust' (Video)

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller was indoctrinated into the bullpen by his fellow relievers by going through the "Fall of Trust" ceremony prior to Sunday's game against the L.A. Dodgers.

As part of the ritual, Miller had to stand on the edge of the wall down the right field bleachers and fall backwards, trusting that his fellow Cardinals relievers would be there to catch him. Fortunately, Miller learned that he could count on his teammates.

Miller has been struggling as a starter with a 7-8 record, and Cards manager Mike Matheny recommended the move to the bullpen to give Miller some extra rest. It's unclear how long Miller will remain in the pen.
