Cardinal Pride: The Story of the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1960s, Paperback/Carroll Conklin

Brand: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform

It was a decade of excitement and drama ... and three National League pennants. It was the decade of three MVPs and one Cy Young Award. Of Lindy and Barney and Hoolie. Of adding a Baby Bull and saying farewell to The Man. The St. Louis Cardinals of the 1960s featured some of the decade's best pitching. And when the hitting produced with MVP consistency, you had World Series champions ... the first in nearly 20 years. In a decade where great hitters tested great pitchers, the Cardinals had their share of both. With outstanding pitchers like Gibson, Briles, Sadecki and Carlton. And outstanding hitters like Boyer, Flood, White, Cepeda, Maris ... and the Hall of Fame left fielder that St. Louis stole from the Cubs. Cardinal Pride recreates the Cardinals' ups and down during baseball's real golden age, the 1960s. It takes you season-by-season, month-by-month, even game-by-game through a decade of triumphs and disappointments, when the heroes of St. Louis summers won hearts as well as games.
