No decade is more responsible for igniting passion and pride in the St. Louis Cardinals than the 1980s. Inheriting a lineup ill-suited to its ballpark, a clubhouse tainted with substance abuse, a franchise in stagnation, manager Whitey Herzog re-invented the brand.
With stunning moves and remarkable vision, he infused the Redbirds with pitching, speed and defense and introduced a decade of thrills and chills. Players like Ozzie Smith, Willie McGee, Bruce Sutter, Jack Clark, and Joaquin Andujar took St. Louis to three World Series and took Busch Stadium attendance to heights it had never known.
Detailed in spectacular pictures and memorable tales, Celebration takes you there —back to the decade of “Whiteyball” and stolen bases, “Secret Weapons” and “Go Crazy!” magic. Celebration: The Magic of the Cardinals in the 1980s is published by Reedy Press and is available wherever books are sold.
