He was married to his high school sweetheart for 71 years before she passed last year. He was GM of the Cards for just one year, and that year they won the WS vs. Boston in 1967. He asked the Cards front office to give him a pay cut after the 1959 season because he hit under .300 (are you listening Luke Ho-Chaser?) He hit a single in his last AB. He played his whole career in St. Louis, and lived his remaining life -including over 40 years as a MLB HOFer- in St. Louis.

Epitome of class. They don't make em like this any more.
Cardinal nation was very lucky to have a man and player of his caliber spend his whole life associated with our team. Very lucky.
