Whiteyball Into the Hall of Fame

December 07, 2009 | Dustin | Comments 1

From Stltoday per Rick Hummel:

“Dorrel Norman Elvert “Whitey” Herzog, the favorite son of New Athens, Ill., and perhaps the most popular manager in Cardinals’ history, was elected to the baseball Hall of Fame this morning in voting conducted by a special Veterans Committee which met on Sunday here.

The 78-old-year Herzog, the 10th person to manage the Cardinals to be so honored, will be inducted into the Hall next July 25 in Cooperstown, N.Y.”

Congratulations to Mr. Herzog, one of the reasons I love this game so much.

    I miss Memphis, and your article reminded me of the many reasons why I miss it. I’m planning a trip there in the spring of next year. I am looking forward to it.
