July 7 in Cardinals History

This Date in Cardinals History

Joe Medwick drives in the winning run and Dizzy Dean picks up the win as the National League wins their first All-Str game in 1936. 

Dizzy Dean, in 1937, gets hits by a line drive on the toe in the All-Star game and is never the same after that. Joe Medwick gets four hits in the game. 

Red Schoendienst plays in his last major league game and grounds out to first base pinch-hitting for Lew Burdette in 1963. 

The White Sox purchase Jeoff Long in 1964 from the Cardinals. 

In 1975, the Cardinals trade Bill Parsons and cash to the Chicago White Sox for Buddy Bradford. 

The Cardinals released Sidney Ponson in 2006. 

The Cardinals, in 2010, sign Mike MacDougal as a free agent.

With the score tied at seven in the bottom of the ninth at Coors Field, Rockies catcher Chris Iannetta makes Evan MacLane’s major league debut memorable, in 2010, when he leads off the inning with a game-ending home run off the 27 year-old rookie. The Cardinals’ southpaw is the first hurler to surrender a game-winning homer to the first major league batter he faces since San Diego’s right-hander J.J. Trujillo accomplished the dubious deed in his major league debut by allowing Baltimore’s Tony Batista to end a game with a round-tripper in 2002.
