Description

Dating back to the Gas House Gang of the 1930s, through the great Schoendienst-Musial teams of the 40s, to El Birdos in the 60s, Whiteyball in the 80s, and all the way up to the clubs most recent world championship, being a Cardinal connotes a style of play, a level of dedication, and a pride in being a member of a special group. This book allows some of the men who have worn that uniform tell the stories of their most memorable moments in Cardinal red. From the greats to the lesser known to the present day, these chapters represent not always the best game of someones career, but rather the moment that stands out the most. Fans can read about the game in which utilityman Jose Oquendo pitched four innings and almost picked up the win. Broadcasters Al Hrabosky and Rick Horton, who now make a living telling stories, share some memories of their own days in the game; and Adam Wainwright, the newest Cardinal hero, tells of his experience closing out the memorable 2006 NLCS.
