THE CARDS beat the ASTROS last night! (5-3) Moving on up....
this post is dedicated to the St. Louis Cardinals current third base coach and former player - jose oquendo! he played in STL 1983-1995 and he was ALWAYS my favorite!
this is why he was the SECRET WEAPON:
Position Games Played There
OF -63 - this included games in center, left, and right!
P -3 - he EVEN pitched
first national league player to play all 9 positions in a season!
i would show you his putouts, assists, errors, and other stats but you might get bored (like in '89 he had 106 double plays and a .994 fielding % - top in the NL) just know that HE is awesome and he and ozzie together were UNBELIEVABLE....(much like the brett hull and adam oates blues hockey phenomenon)
When i was little i wanted to be just like JOSE (yes a boy and yes a baseball player... later i wanted to be the first woman in baseball! haha! jose is the cause for my obsession with the number 11 for all MY jerseys had to be #11! ) My dad and i would keep score in the little scorecards at busch and there were frequently 6-4-3's! to report when jose was around!
i am happy the cards are going to win the WORLD SERIES THIS YEAR even if i am not there to see any of it! =)
