July 5 in Cardinals History

The Brooklyn Superbas purchased Al Burch from the St. Louis Cardinals in 1907.

The Cardinals, in 1932,  traded Joel Hunt and Jake Miller to the White Sox for Hal Anderson.

In a doubleheader in 1937, Frank Demaree gets 6 hits in 7 at-bats in the first game to aid the Cardinals in a 13-12 win over the Cubs in 14 innings. He got two more hits in game two.

Al Papai is selected off waivers in 1950 by the Cardinals from the Red Sox.

Cardinals first baseman and future President of the National League, Bill White, hit three home runs and smacks a double in a 9-1 rout of the Dodgers in 1961.

The Cubs are still reeling in 1966 from the trade with the Cardinals which was Lou Brock for Ernie Broglio as they finally send him to the minors three years after they get him. He will never return to the major leagues.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim traded Jeff Weaver and cash to the St. Louis Cardinals for Terry Evans in 2006.

Cardinals signed Blaine Boyer and Ron Mahay as free agents in 2011.
