Remembering the '64 St. Louis Cardinals

Mar 28, 2014

This is the 50th anniversary of the St. Louis Cardinals 1964 World Series win over the New York Yankees.
Most people probably attribute the Cardinals title run to the mid-season acquisition of a future Hall of Fame outfielder. But, in his latest edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson explains how another trade may have been the real key to the season.
 

Reading Baseball is a series of original essays and commentaries by Richard "Pete" Peterson, the author of Pops: The Willie Stargell Story and Growing Up With Clemente.
