Cardinal right-hander Bill Doak loses his no-hitter in 1922 when he forgets to cover first base, turning Curt Walker’s seventh-inning grounder to first baseman Jack Fournier into an infield hit. The Redbirds’ star spitballer settles for a one-hitter, his second of the season, and a 1-0 victory over the Phillies at Sportsman’s Park.

St. Louis is the host of the All-Star game in 1948 and fans are thrilled as Stan Musial hits a home run in the first inning.

The Cardinals in 1972 disposed of the Braves 2-0 in a game that lasted 93 minutes as Reggie Cleveland 2-hits Atlanta.

The St. Louis Cardinals signed Eliezer Alfonzo as an amateur free agent in 1996.
