The St. Louis Cardinals will honor the 1982 World Championship club during the weekend of August 12-14 when the Milwaukee Brewers are in town.
This year represents the 40th anniversary of the Cardinals 1982 World Series Championship. For those of us who remember that year and the team, there are many special memories.
Why is the ’82 team so special? The World Championship was the first for the Cardinals since 1967, and their first postseason since 1968. The postseason drought during the 1970s was long and painful for most Cardinal fans.
Now, I would like to share some of the most memorable moments from 1982. These special memories include Willie McGee, Bob Forsch, Glenn Brummer, Bruce Sutter, Keith Hernandez, and Darrell Porter, to name just a few.
The moments below are just some which stand out to me. For those of you who remember 1982, you may have other special memories.
