Cardinals History

 

1951 – At Sportsman’s Park, the Cardinals split a three-team twin bill, beating the Giants 6-4 in a rescheduled afternoon game due to rain the day before, and then the Redbirds are blanked by the Braves in the regularly scheduled night game, 2-0. It is the first time since 1883 that a three-team twin bill has been played.

1964–  The Cardinals become only the second team in major league history this century to score at least one run in every inning as they rout Chicago, 15-2. A dropped pop-up in the top of the ninth secures St. Louis’ place in history.

1971– The St. Louis Cardinals purchased Mike Jackson from the Kansas City Royals.

1977- The St. Louis Cardinals signed Jim Dwyer as a free agent.
