The achievements of Hall of Fame member Red Schoendienst are many: he was an outstanding second baseman often leading the league in fielding statistics. He was a member of the 1946 Cardinal and 1957 Brave
After retiring as a player he managed the World Champion Cardinal team of 1967. He managed the 1968 NL Champion team and was a coach for the World Series Champion 1964 and 1982 Cardinals! He was the bench coach of the 1985 and 1987 NL Champs. He ranks second in wins as a Cardinal Manager. In 1967 and 1968 he earned the Manager of the Year Award. Hope you can plan on coming out to meet the third oldest members of the Hall of Fame and the oldest manager of a World Series Champion team! He has been in a MLB uniform in various capacities for 70 years. Come out to congratulate him in his 70th season in uniform!!
It has been eight years since Hall of Fame pitcher, Jim Bunning, last appeared with St Louis Sports Collectors. The achievements of Mr. Bunning are numerous: nine time All-Star, three time
While with the Tigers, he pitched a no-hitter against the Ted Williams led Boston Red Sox. On Father's Day, 1964 while with the Phillies, he tossed a perfect game against the Mets. The perfect game was the first thrown in the National League since 1880! He is one of seven pitchers to throw a perfect game and a separate no hitter, four of those came after his. He is only one of five pitchers to have a no hitter in each league. Lastly, on August 2, 1959, Bunning struck out three batters on nine pitches in the ninth inning of a 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox. He is one of ten pitchers to accomplish a nine pitch/three strikeout inning. His post baseball career was also very rewarding by serving five terms in the US House of Representatives and two terms in the United States Senate.
