The first inductee in the I-70 Hall Of Legends, Whitey Herzog was a legendary manager for both franchises.
Whitey Herzog was the leader as well as the heart and soul of the St. Louis Cardinals in 1985.
Anchored by closer extraordinaire Dan Quisenberry, the Royals’ 1985 pitching staff was one for the books.
43 years ago, another Cardinals pitcher turned in an even more remarkable rookie season, finishing second in voting to Tom Seaver of the New York Mets. The story of Dick Hughes goes far beyond a 16-6 record with a 2.67 ERA over 222 innings. Forget that he had one of the best sliders in the game, and held right handed hitters to a .197 batting average. The real story of Dick Hughes is one of determination and refusing to quit, in spite of overwhelming odds against success.
