Overview

The stats and stories behind the Redbirds legend
Featuring every relevant team record, statistic, and award winner from the St. Louis Cardinals’ incredible past, this book includes a comprehensive collection of Redbirds all-time leaders in every conceivable category, from hits to strikeouts. From Dizzy Dean’s 30 wins or Lou Brock’s 938 career stolen bases to Bob Gibson’s single-season ERA of 1.12 or Mark McGwire’s 70 home runs in a season, this reference captures the legends and lore of the Cardinals. More than a collection of statistics, this guide provides profiles of the men behind the records and explores the context in which they were set while featuring stories which, in many cases, are even more fascinating than the actual records. Historical game details and evocative photographs blend with compelling statistics and the great players responsible for them to capture the rich history of this storied and celebrated franchise.

The Ultimate Cardinals Record Book:
A Complete Guide to the Most Unusual, Unbelievable, and Unbreakable Records in Cardinals History
By Dan Moore

 

St. Louis has always been a baseball town. As the most successful franchise in the National League, the Cardinals have amassed some of the most hallowed records and colorful players in baseball history. The team's 11 World Series championships. Stan Musial's 3,630 hits. Rogers Hornsby's career .359 average. There's plenty of impressive sheer numbers in the Cardinals' history, but it's the men behind the records-from Dizzy Dean to Albert Pujols-who have thrilled and enchanted St. Louis fans for over a century.

 

The Ultimate Cardinals Record Book: A Complete Guide to the Most Unusual, Unbelievable, and Unbreakable Records in Cardinals History features every relevant team record, statistic, and award winner from the Redbirds' incredible past. Author Dan Moore has compiled a comprehensive collection of the Cardinals' all-time leaders in every conceivable category, from hits leaders to strikeout kings, many of which cannot be found anywhere else. And, much like the team itself, The Ultimate Cardinals Record Book is about far more than just statistics; player profiles, historical game details, and action photographs bring the greatest achievements of the Cardinals to life, including:

 

  • Bob Gibson's 1.12 ERA
  • Stan Musial's 5-homerun doubleheader
  • Lou Brock's record-breaking base stealing
  • Mark McGwire breaking the single-season homerun record
  • The charge to the 2011 World Series

 

The Ultimate Cardinals Record Book is much more than just a book of stats. It's an exhaustive resource that recounts the hidden stories and details every trivia-hungry fan wants to know.
