The St. Louis
St. Louis
Cardinals are an American professional baseball team based in St. Louis, Missouri. The Cardinals compete in Major League Baseball
Baseball
(MLB) as a member club of the National League

(NL) Central division. Busch Stadium
Busch Stadium
has been their home ballpark since 2006. With origins as one of the early professional baseball clubs in St. Louis, entrepreneur Chris von der Ahe
Chris von der Ahe
purchased a barnstorming club in 1881, then known as the Brown Stockings, and established them as charter members of the American Association (AA) the following season. Upon the discontinuation of the AA, St. Louis
St. Louis
joined the NL in 1892; at that time, they were called the Browns and the Perfectos before they were officially renamed as the Cardinals in 1900. One of the most successful franchises in baseball history, the Cardinals have won 11 World Series
World Series
championships, the second-most in Major League Baseball

just behind the New York Yankees, and the most in the National League. Their 19 National League

pennants rank third in NL history. In addition, St. Louis
St. Louis
has won 13 division titles in the East and Central divisions. While still in the AA, St. Louis

won four league championships, qualifying them to play in a forerunner of the World Series. They tied in 1885 and won outright in 1886,[3] both times against Chicago, in the first meetings of the Cardinals–Cubs rivalry that continues to this day. Cardinals achievements that have impacted MLB and sports in general include Branch Rickey's pioneering of the farm system, Rogers Hornsby's two batting Triple Crowns, Dizzy Dean's 30-win season in 1934, Stan Musial's 17 MLB and 29 NL records, Bob Gibson's 1.12 earned run average (ERA) in 1968, Whitey Herzog's Whiteyball, Mark McGwire breaking the single-season home run record in 1998, and the 2011 championship team's unprecedented comebacks.[4] The Cardinals have won 105 or more games in four different seasons and won 100 or more a total of nine times. Cardinals players have won 20 league MVPs, four batting Triple Crowns, and three Cy Young

valued the Cardinals at $1.8 billion, making them the 7th-most valuable franchise in MLB; their revenue the previous year was $310 million and their operating income was $40.5 million.[5][6][7] Since their purchase in 1995, owner William DeWitt, Jr.'s investment group has seen enormous growth from the $147 million purchase price.

Cardinals (1875–1919) Before the Cardinals (1875–1881)[edit] Professional baseball began in St. Louis
St. Louis
with the inception of the Brown Stockings in the National Association (NA) in 1875. The NA folded following that season, and the next season, St. Louis

joined the National League

as a charter member, finishing in third place at 45-19. George Bradley hurled the first no-hitter in Major League history. The NL expelled St. Louis
St. Louis
from the league after 1877 due to a game-fixing scandal and the team went bankrupt.[12] Without a league, they continued play as a semi-professional barnstorming team through 1881. The magnitudes of the reorganizations following the 1877 and 1881 seasons are such that the 1875–1877 and 1878–1881 Brown Stockings teams are not generally considered to share continuity as a franchise with the current St. Louis
St. Louis
Cardinals.[13][14] American Association and early National League

eras (1882–1919)[edit]

Charles Comiskey, shown here circa 1910, guided the Browns to four American Association titles.

For the 1882 season, Chris von der Ahe
Chris von der Ahe
purchased the team, reorganized it, and made it a founding member of the American Association (AA), a league to rival the NL.[15] 1882 is generally considered to be the first year existence of the St. Louis
St. Louis
Cardinals.[13][14][16][c] The next season, St. Louis
St. Louis
shortened their name to the Browns. Soon thereafter they became the dominant team in the AA, as manager Charlie Comiskey guided St. Louis
St. Louis
to four pennants in a row from 1885 to 1888.[3][19] Pitcher

led the league in ERA (2.07) and wins (40) in 1885 and finished in the top six in both in each of the following two seasons. He also led the AA in OBP (.448) and OPS (.974) in 1886 and finished fourth in batting average in 1886 (.334) and fifth in 1887 (.357).[20] Outfielder
Outfielder
Tip O'Neill won the first batting triple crown in franchise history in 1887 and the only one in AA history.[21][22][23] By winning the pennant, the Browns played the NL pennant winner in a predecessor of the World Series. The Browns twice met the Chicago

White Stockings – the Chicago

rivalry that ensues to this day.[24] During the franchise's ten seasons in the AA, they compiled an all-time league-high of 780 wins and .639 winning percentage. They lost just 432 contests while tying 21 others.[3]

Rogers Hornsby
Rogers Hornsby
won two Triple Crowns as a Cardinal.[23]

The AA went bankrupt after the 1891 season and the Browns transferred to the National League. This time, the club entered an era of stark futility. Between 1892 and 1919, St. Louis
St. Louis
managed just five winning seasons, finished in last or next-to-last place sixteen times, and ended four seasons with 100 losses or more. The nadir was the 1897 season: a 29–102 record for a franchise-worst .221 winning percentage.[3] St. Louis' 84-67 finish as the Perfectos would be the team's best finish between the AA era and Sam Breadon's purchase of the team.[25] As the "Perfectos", the team wore their jersey with a cardinal red trim and sock striping.[25] Later that season, St. Louis Republic sportswriter Willie McHale included an account in a column of a female fan he heard remarking about the uniforms, "What a lovely shade of cardinal." Fans liked the moniker "Cardinals" and, the next year, popularity for the nickname induced an official change to Cardinals.[25] In 1902, an American League

team moved from Milwaukee
Milwaukee
into St. Louis, renamed themselves the St. Louis
St. Louis
Browns and built a new park on the site of the Cardinals' old stadium, striking a rivalry that lasted five decades.[26] Breadon bought a minority interest in the Cardinals in 1917 and in 1919 Browns manager Branch Rickey
Branch Rickey
joined the Cardinals.[27][28] The Cardinals' first 28 seasons in the NL were a complete reversal of their stay in the AA – with a .406 winning percentage, they compiled 1,632 wins, 2,425 losses and 74 ties.[3] Breadon era (1920–52)[edit] Main article: History of the St. Louis

baseball commenced a renaissance: since 1926 the Cardinals have won eleven World Series

and nineteen NL pennants.[3] Breadon spurred this revival when bought out the majority stake in 1920 and appointed Rickey as business manager, who expanded scouting, player development, and pioneered the minor league farm system, filling the role of today's general manager.[29] With Rogers Hornsby

The Gashouse Gang edition claimed the 1934 World Series[31] and the Cardinals amassed new thresholds of popularity far outside St. Louis via radio, which led to the coining of the term "Cardinal Nation".[32] Dizzy Dean

led the Gang, winning the 1934 MVP, and leading the NL multiple times in wins, strikeouts, innings, complete games and shutouts.[33] Johnny Mize

emerged as two power threats, with Medwick claiming the last Triple Crown for a Cardinal in 1937.[23][31][34][35][36] In the 1940s, a golden era emerged as Rickey's farm system became laden with such talent as Marty Marion,[37] Enos Slaughter,[38] Mort Cooper,[39] Walker Cooper,[40] Stan Musial,[41] Max Lanier,[42] Whitey Kurowski,[43] Red Schoendienst[44] and Johnny Beazley.[45] It was one of the most successful decades in franchise history with 960 wins 580 losses for a winning percentage higher than any other Major League team at .623.[46] With Billy Southworth

managing, they won the World Series in 1942 and 1944 (in the only all- St. Louis
St. Louis
series against the Browns), and won 105 or more games each in 1942, 1943, and 1944.[3] Southworth's managerial winning percentage (.642) is St. Louis' highest since the franchise joined the National League.[47][48] Musial was considered the most consistent hitter of his era and most accomplished in team history, winning three MVPs and seven batting titles.[41][49] St. Louis

Bob Gibson, the most decorated pitcher in team history, won two Cy Young Awards.[52]

In 1953 the Anheuser-Busch

to become the Orioles, and making the Cardinals the only major league club in town.[54] More success followed in the 1960s, starting with what is considered one of the most lopsided trades in Major League history, as St. Louis

Posting a modern-day record low ERA of 1.12 and striking out a one-game World Series-record of 17,[64] Gibson won both the MVP and Cy Young

awards that year.[65] However, the Cardinals failed to repeat as World Series

champions, blowing a 3-1 lead to the underdog Detroit Tigers. In the 1970s, catcher/third baseman Joe Torre

and his Whiteyball style of play and another trade that altered course of the franchise: in 1982, shortstop Garry Templeton was shipped to the Padres for fellow shortstop Ozzie Smith.[68][69] Widely regarded as one of the best defensive players in history, Smith ranks first all-time among shortstops in Gold Glove

defeated the Texas Rangers later that game with a walk-off home run from Freese.[95] After winning that Series, La Russa retired and became the only manager to do so after winning a title. He also finished with the most wins for managers in franchise history with 1,408.[96][97] La Russa's successor, Mike Matheny, helped extend St. Louis' playoff run as he became the first manager in the division play era to guide the Cardinals to the NLCS and playoffs in his first two seasons.[98] In 2014, the Cardinals extended their NLCS streak to 4, with their 3-1 series victory over the Dodgers, in the NLDS. Ten days after being eliminated from the postseason by the San Francisco Giants, rookie outfielder Oscar Taveras

was killed in a car accident while traveling to his hometown Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.[99] On November 17, they acquired Atlanta Braves

and the Justice Department started an investigation on the Cardinals for possibly hacking the Houston Astros. The hacking incident was perpetrated by Scouting Director Chris Correa.[101] For the first time since the 2007-2008 seasons, the Cardinals missed the playoffs in consecutive years, 2016-2017. Ballpark[edit] Main articles: Busch Stadium, Busch Memorial Stadium, Sportsman's Park, and Robison Field The Cardinals play their home games at Busch Stadium
Busch Stadium
(also referred to as New Busch Stadium

or Busch III) in downtown St. Louis, straddling 7th and Clark near the intersection of Interstates 64 and 70.[102] The stadium opened for the 2006 season at a cost of $411 million and holds a normal capacity of 46,861.[103][104] The Cardinals finished their inaugural season in the new Busch Stadium
Busch Stadium
by winning the 2006 World Series, the first team since the 1923 New York Yankees

(soccer) friendly match between Chelsea F.C. and Manchester City F.C., made possible by on field seating.[110] The largest attendance (53,000) of any event at Busch belongs to U2 during a concert from their 360° Tour in 2011.[111] Ballpark Village, a mixed-use development located across Clark Street from Busch Stadium, is targeted to enhance the ballpark goers' experience.[citation needed] Phase 1 of the development, completed for the start of the 2014 season, includes entertainment venues, restaurants, and retail. Anchored by Cardinals Nation (which includes the Cardinals Hall of Fame, a two-story Cardinals-themed restaurant and rooftop seating for 300+ fans with views of the field across the street), a 20,000 sq ft Budweiser Brew House, FOX Sports Midwest Live! and PBR, the $100 million phase 1 development of Ballpark Village is intended to be a gathering space throughout the year, not just during the baseball season.[112] Previous ballparks[edit] Busch Stadium
Busch Stadium
is the Cardinals' fourth home ballpark and the third to bear that name. The Cardinals' original home ballpark was Sportsman's Park from 1882 to 1892 when they played in the American Association and were known as the Browns. In 1893, the Browns moved to a new ballpark five blocks northwest of Sportsman's Park
Sportsman's Park
which would serve as their home from 1893 to 1920. The new park was originally called New Sportsman's Park
Sportsman's Park
but became more commonly referred to as Robison Field.[25] Midway through the 1920 season the Cardinals abandoned Robison Field and returned to the original Sportsman's Park
Sportsman's Park
and became tenants of their American League
American League
rivals, the St. Louis
St. Louis
Browns. In 1953, the Anheuser-Busch
Anheuser-Busch
Brewery purchased the Cardinals and the new owner subsequently also purchased Sportsman's Park
Sportsman's Park
from the Browns and renamed it Busch Stadium, later becoming Busch I. The Browns then left St. Louis
St. Louis
for Baltimore
Baltimore
after the season. The Cardinals built Busch Memorial Stadium, or Busch II, in downtown St. Louis, opened it during the 1966 season and played there until 2005.[51] It was built as the multi-purpose stadium home of both the baseball Cardinals and the NFL football Cardinals, who are now the Arizona Cardinals. The current Busch Stadium
Busch Stadium
was constructed adjacent to, and partly atop, the site of Busch Memorial Stadium. Spring training[edit] The Cardinals home field in spring training is Roger Dean Stadium
Stadium
in Jupiter, Florida. They share the complex, which opened in 1998, with the Miami Marlins. Before moving to Jupiter, the Cardinals hosted spring training at Al Lang Field

in St. Petersburg, Florida
St. Petersburg, Florida
from 1937 to 1997. Regular season home attendance[edit] The Cardinals have exceeded the attendance total of 3 million every season since 2004.

Logos and uniforms[edit] The Cardinals have had few logos throughout their history, although those logos have evolved over time. The first logo associated with the Cardinals was an interlocking "SL" that appeared on the team's caps and or sleeves as early as 1900. Those early uniforms usually featured the name "St. Louis" on white home and gray road uniforms which both had cardinal red accents. In 1920, the "SL" largely disappeared from the team's uniforms, and for the next 20 years the team wore caps that were white with red striping and a red bill.

The original "birds on the bat" logo, which first appeared in 1922.

In 1922, the Cardinals wore uniforms for the first time that featured the two familiar cardinal birds perched on a baseball bat over the name "Cardinals" with the letter "C" of the word hooked over the bat. The concept of the birds originated after general manager Branch Rickey noticed a colorful cardboard arrangement featuring cardinal birds on a table in a Presbyterian church in Ferguson, Missouri, at which he was speaking. The arrangement's production was by a woman named Allie May Schmidt. Schmidt's father, a graphic designer, helped Ricky make the logo a familiar staple on Cardinals uniforms.[114] Colloquially referred to as the "birds on the bat", it initially appeared with the birds perched on a black bat and "Cardinals" in printed letters. An alternate version of this logo with "St. Louis" replacing "Cardinals" appeared in 1930 and was the primary logo in 1931 and 1932 before "Cardinals" returned. In 1940, the now-familiar "StL" logo was introduced on the team's caps. The interlocking "StL" has undergone several slight modifications over the years but has appeared on the team's caps every year since. The first appearance of the "STL" in 1940 coincided with the introduction of navy blue as a uniform color. From 1940 until 1955, the team wore navy blue caps with red bills and a red interlocking "StL" while the jerseys featured both cardinal red and navy blue accents. In 1951, the "birds on the bat" logo was changed to feature a yellow baseball bat.[115]

The current "birds on the bat" logo introduced in 1998.

In 1956, the Cardinals changed their caps to solid blue with a red "StL", removing the red bill. Also, for that season only, the Cardinals wore a script "Cardinals" wordmark on their uniforms excluding the "birds on the bat." An updated version of the "birds on the bat" logo returned in 1957 with the word "Cardinals" written in cursive beneath the bat. In 1962, the Cardinals became the first National League
National League
team to display players' names on the back of their jerseys. In 1964, while retaining their blue caps for road games, the Cardinals changed their home caps to all red with a white interlocking "StL". The next year, they changed their road caps to red as well. In 1967, the birds on the bat emblem on the jersey was again tweaked, making the birds more realistic and changing the position of their tails relative to the bat and this version remained on all Cardinals game jerseys through 1997. In 1971, following the trend in baseball at the time, the Cardinals replaced the traditional flannel front-button shirts and pants with belts with new pullover knit jerseys and elastic waist pants. Another trend in baseball led the Cardinals to change their road uniforms from gray to light blue from 1976 to 1984. In 1992, the Cardinals returned to wearing traditional button-down shirts and pants with belts. That same year they also began wearing an all-navy cap with a red "StL" on the road only while wearing the same red and white cap at home games. In 1998, the "birds on the bat" was updated for the first time in 30 years with more detailed birds and bolder letters. That year, St. Louis introduced a cap featuring a single cardinal bird perched on a bat worn only on Sunday home games. The new birds on the bat design was modified again the next year, with yellow beaks and white eyes replacing the red beaks and yellow eyes of the 1998 version. Uniform numbers also returned to the front of the jerseys in 1999 after a two-year absence.[115] On November 16, 2012, the Cardinals unveiled a new alternate uniform to be worn at home games on Saturdays beginning with the 2013 season.[needs update] The modified jersey, cream-colored with red trim on the sleeves and down the front, was the first since 1932 in which "St. Louis" will be used instead of "Cardinals" and retained the "birds on the bat."[116] 2013 also saw the team adopt their red caps as their main uniform for both home and away games; the navy cap was retained as an alternate, used mainly against other red-capped teams. Over the years, the Cardinals have released various marketing logos depicting anthropomorphized cardinals in a pitching stance, swinging a baseball bat, or wearing a baseball cap that never became part of the game uniform.[115] Support[edit] Fans[edit] Main article: Cardinal Nation Mascots[edit] Main articles: Fredbird
Fredbird
and Rally Squirrel The team mascot is an anthropomorphic cardinal wearing the team's uniform named Fredbird. He is assisted by Team Fredbird, a group of eleven women who entertain fans from the field and on top of the dugouts. While unofficial, the Rally Squirrel
Rally Squirrel
became an unexpected phenomenon during the 2011 postseason. Making its "debut" in Game 3 of the NLDS on Oct 4, a squirrel ran across home plate in the middle of a pitch from Roy Oswalt
Roy Oswalt
of the Phillies to the Cardinals' Skip Schumaker. The Cardinals would win Game 4 and subsequently Game 5 (Oct. 7) in Philadelphia to advance to the NLCS, symbolizing the squirrel's "role" in the victory. The squirrel was popularized as "Buschie the Rally Squirrel"[117] As a tribute to the popularity of the squirrel, a small depiction of the Rally Squirrel
Rally Squirrel
is also included on the official World Series rings the team received. It shows up under the "STL" logo on the side of the ring. Fredbird
Fredbird
sparked controversy in May 2015, when he was asked by a fan for a photograph and handed him a sign that said "Police Lives Matter". The team later claimed that Fredbird

should not be involved in any political activity or social commentary. Rivalries[edit] Chicago
Chicago
Cubs[edit] Main article: Cardinals–Cubs rivalry The Cardinals–Cubs rivalry
Cardinals–Cubs rivalry
refers to games between the Cardinals and the Chicago
Chicago
Cubs. The rivalry is also known as the Downstate Illinois rivalry or the I-55 Series (in earlier years as the Route 66 Series) as both cities are located along Interstate 55
Interstate 55
(which itself succeeded the famous U.S. Route 66). The Cubs lead the series 1,134–1,103 through June 22, 2016, while the Cardinals lead in National League pennants with 19 against the Cubs' 17. The Cubs have won 11 of those pennants in Major League Baseball's Modern Era (1901–present), while all 19 of the Cardinals' pennants have been won since 1926. The Cardinals also have an edge when it comes to World Series
World Series
successes, having won 11 championships to the Cubs' 3. Games featuring the Cardinals and Cubs see numerous visiting fans in either Busch Stadium in St. Louis
St. Louis
or Wrigley Field
Wrigley Field
in Chicago.[118] When the National League split into two and then three divisions, the Cardinals and Cubs remained together. This has added excitement to several pennant races over the years. The Cardinals and Cubs have played each other once in the postseason, when the Cubs beat the Cardinals 3 games to 1 in the 2015 National League

Cardinals owners and executives Ownership and valuation[edit] An investment group led by William DeWitt, Jr.
William DeWitt, Jr.
owns the St. Louis Cardinals, having bought the team from Anheuser-Busch
Anheuser-Busch
(AB) in 1996.[119] As with other periods of the Cardinals' transaction history, doubt loomed as to whether the purchaser would keep the team in St. Louis, due to the city's status as a "small market", which appear to handicap a club's competitiveness. Such was the case when Sam Breadon
Sam Breadon
put the Cardinals up for sale in 1947: then-NL President Ford Frick
Ford Frick
proposed moving the Cardinals to Chicago.[120] When AB placed the Cardinals for sale in 1995, they publicly expressed intention to find a buyer who would keep the club in St. Louis.[121] In March 1996, AB sold the team for $147 million to a partnership headed by Southwest Bank's Drew Baur, Hanser and DeWitt, Jr.[120] Civic Center Redevelopment, a subsidiary of AB, held the parking garages and adjacent property and also transferred them to the Baur ownership group.[122] Baur's group then sold the garages to another investment group, lowering the net franchise purchase price to about $100 million, about $10 million less than Financial World's value of the team at the time $110 million.[121][123] Current Cincinnati Reds
Cincinnati Reds
owners Bob Castellini and brothers Thomas Williams and W. Joseph Williams Jr. each once owned a stake in the Cardinals dating back to the Baur-DeWitt group's purchase of the team. To allow their purchase of the Reds in 2005, the rest of the group bought out Castellini's and the Williams brothers' shares, totaling an estimated thirteen percent. At that time, the Forbes
Forbes
valued the Cardinals at about $370 million.[124] However, after reabsorbing that stake into the remainder of the group, they decided to make it available to new investors in 2010. Amid later allegations that the Cardinals owed the city profit shares, DeWitt revealed that their profitability had not reached the threshold to trigger that obligation.[125] Recent annual financial records[edit] As of 2017, Forbes
Forbes
valued the Cardinals seventh among 30 MLB franchises. Their estimated value of $1.80 billion was an increase of $200 million from the season before, when they ranked seventh. St. Louis' revenue in 2016 was $310 million, up $10 million. Their Operating income was $40.5 million.[5] The Cardinals' deal with Fox Sports Midwest, signed in 2015, begins in 2018, and is worth $1 billion through 2032.[126][6][7][127][128][129] In 2014, Forbes
Forbes
valued the Cardinals at $820 million and opined previously that they play "in the best single-team baseball market in the country and are among the league's leaders in television ratings and attendance every season."[129] Concurrent with the growth of Major League Baseball, the Cardinals value has increased significantly since the Baur-DeWitt purchase. In 2000, the franchise was valued at $219 million,[130] a growth rate of 374% through 2014. The franchise's value grew 12.7% from 2013 to 2014.

Retired numbers[edit] See also: List of Major League Baseball
Major League Baseball
retired numbers The Cardinals have retired 12 total jersey numbers––second in MLB only to the New York Yankees' 21––in honoring 14 total former players and club personnel on the left field wall at Busch Stadium.[171][172] A 15th, Jackie Robinson, is honored by all MLB teams.[173] During the time Rogers Hornsby
Rogers Hornsby
had played, the Cardinals did not have any numbers on their uniforms. This practice had begun with the Cleveland Indians
Cleveland Indians
in 1920. Thus, Hornsby had no number to retire.

Jackie Robinson 2B Retired by MLB '97

Bob Gibson SP, Coach Retired 1975

Gussie Busch Owner Retired 1984

Jack Buck Broadcaster Honored 2002

Notes:

Hornsby: When honored in 1937, '"SL"' was used in place of a number as he played mostly in an era without numbers.[174]

42: Jackie Robinson's number 42 was retired throughout baseball in 1997. The Cardinals again retired 42 in September 2006 in honor of Sutter, who was elected to the Hall of Fame earlier in the year. 85: Cardinal stockholders honored Busch with the number 85 on his 85th birthday in 1984.

Out of circulation, but not officially retired[edit]

5: Albert Pujols' (1B, 2001–2011) number has not been reissued since he signed with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
after the 2011 season.[citation needed] 51: Willie McGee's (OF, 1982–1990, 1996–1999) number has not been reissued since late in the 2001 season.[175] 57: Darryl Kile's (P, 2000–02) number has not been reissued since his death in the middle of the 2002 season. Along with Josh Hancock's number 32, another active pitcher deceased in the middle of the season, they are honored with small circular logos bearing their initials and numbers on the wall of the Cardinal bullpen. During the 2014 playoffs, but following the Cardinals' elimination, rookie and star prospect Oscar Taveras
Oscar Taveras
was killed in a car accident. His number 18 was added along with Kile's and Hancock's in the home bullpen; however, his number was reissued the following season to close friend Carlos Martinez.[176]

Radio and television coverage[edit] See also: List of St. Louis
St. Louis
Cardinals broadcasters Radio[edit] Capable of reaching 21 million listeners in nine states including Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Tennessee, the Cardinals radio network is the second-largest in MLB with 117 affiliate stations.[11] In St. Louis, CBS-owned KMOX
KMOX
(1120 AM) airs Cardinals games over radio and feeds the rest of the Cardinals network. Mike Shannon
Mike Shannon
and John Rooney alternate as play-by-play announcers, with Chris Hrabe serving as pre-game and post-game host. KMOX's 50,000-watt clear-channel signal covers much of the continental United States at night. At one time, owing to the Cardinals' status as a "regional" franchise, the Cardinals radio network reached almost half of the country. The 2011 season marked the Cardinals' return to KMOX
KMOX
following five seasons on KTRS (550 AM), a station which is 50 percent owned by the Cardinals. With a partnership spanning seven decades, and continuously since 1954, its conclusion realized after the 2005 season when CBS Radio and the Cardinals failed to reach terms on a new rights agreement. However, frustrated by the underpowered coverage of 5,000-watt KTRS, the Cardinals reached a new deal with KMOX
KMOX
in 2011. Mike Shannon
Mike Shannon
will announce 30 fewer games in 2013, compared to the 15 he took off in 2012, and in previous seasons. Most of the games will be road games and three-city trips. He has been announcing Cardinals' games starting in 1972, making 2013 his 41st year announcing. He turns 74 in July.[177] He has announced Cardinals' games for more years than anyone except Jack Buck
Jack Buck
(1954–58, 1961–2001) who announced for 46 years. Television[edit] Since 2000, Cardinals telecasts have generated the top three in ratings in MLB every season.[11] Fox Sports Midwest
Fox Sports Midwest
airs all games in high-definition and is the team's exclusive television broadcaster, with the exception of selected Saturday afternoon games on Fox (via its St. Louis
St. Louis
affiliate, KTVI) or Sunday Night Baseball
Baseball
on ESPN. Fox Sports Indiana, Fox Sports South, Fox Sports Tennessee, Fox Sports Oklahoma, Fox Sports Southwest, and SportSouth
SportSouth
air Cardinals games for fans living within the Cardinals broadcast territory who do not receive the Fox Sports Midwest
Fox Sports Midwest
channel. During the 2016 season, the Cardinals averaged a 8.54 rating and 104,000 viewers on primetime TV broadcasts in St Louis.[178] The television commentators lineup includes Dan McLaughlin, Rick Horton, and Al Hrabosky. Jimmy "The Cat" Hayes serves as dugout reporter during the game as well as on Cardinals Live, a pre- and post-game show. Cardinals Live is hosted in-studio by Pat Parris along with game analysts and former Cardinals players Jim Edmonds, Gary Bennett and Chris Duncan.[179] Cardinals Kids, a program aimed at the team's younger fans, airs weekly in-season on Fox Sports Midwest. It's hosted by former Cardinals pitcher Andy Benes, team mascot Fredbird, and Busch Stadium Public Address announcer John "The U-Man" Ulett. The 30-minute show began airing in 2003 and presents team news, player profiles, and Cardinals team history in a kid-friendly manner along with games and trivia.[180] A weekly magazine program, This Week in Cardinal Nation, airs on St. Louis' NBC
NBC
affiliate KSDK. Cardinals games had been seen on KSDK

(and its predecessor, KSD-TV) from 1947 through 1958, 1963 through 1987, and 2007 until 2010. KPLR-TV
KPLR-TV
was the Cardinals' other over-the-air broadcaster, carrying games from 1959 through 1962 and from 1988 until 2006. Former Cardinals broadcasters include Jack Buck, Harry Caray, Dizzy Dean, Joe Garagiola, Sr., and Jay Randolph. Joe Buck, the son of Jack Buck, was an official member of the Cardinals' broadcast team from 1991 until 2007. The younger Buck is currently the lead play-by-play caller for Fox Sports' national Major League Baseball

Notes[edit]

^ In 2001, the Cardinals and the Houston Astros
Houston Astros
finished the season with identical records of 93–69 and finished tied for first place in the Central Division standings. The Baseball Hall of Fame
Baseball Hall of Fame
wrote they were both awarded a co-championship.[1] According to the Cardinals' website, this was "the first shared championship in major-league history".[2] For playoff seeding, the NL Central slot went to Houston and St. Louis
St. Louis
was awarded the wild card berth. ^ In 1981, the Cardinals finished with the overall best record in the East Division. However, a players' strike in the middle of the season forced the season to be split into two halves. St. Louis
St. Louis
finished second in both halves and was thereby deprived of a post-season appearance. ^ Most sources consider the 1882 Brown Stockings to represent the beginning of the St. Louis
St. Louis
Cardinals (if it was not the even earlier 1875 or 1878 clubs) but the St. Louis
St. Louis
Cardinals baseball club itself considers its history to have begun in 1892 when the team (still called the St. Louis
St. Louis
Browns) joined the National League.[17][18] ^ Although the St. Louis
St. Louis
Cardinals do not officially recognize their era in the American Association (AA) as part of their Major League history, Major League Baseball
Major League Baseball
recognized that incarnation of the AA in 1968, as well as other historic leagues, existing as former Major Leagues.
