Funds Being Raised for RBI program of Cardinals Care in Memory of Ted Savage

The family of former Major League Baseball player and St. Louis Cardinals employee Ted Savage is hoping to keep his memory alive by helping underserved communities in his honor.

Ted Savage was a major league baseball player in the 60’s and 70’s. He played for several teams in the league, including the St. Louis Cardinals during the mid-60’s. In 1971, Ted rejoined the Cardinals as a member of their marketing and community relations team until he retired in 2012.

From the St. Louis Cardinals: “We are saddened to learn of the passing of former Cardinals outfielder Ted Savage. After a nine-year MLB career, Ted served as Athletic Director at nearby Harris-Stowe and spent 25 years in our Community Relations department. Our prayers and thoughts are with the Savage family.”

Wanda Savage-Moore, the fundraiser organizer, wants to make sure Ted’s memory lives on by giving back to a program he established to help kids achieve their dreams.

“He remembered what it was like to grow up in an underserved community without access to baseball fields and equipment and created a way to fund a newly established program called RBI – Reviving Baseball in the Inner City by starting an annual golf tournament,” Savage-Moore said. “In memory of Ted’s passing away, we are looking for a way to make this the largest year of donation to the RBI in Ted’s name.
