Immortal Moments in Cardinals History

For more than a century, the St. Louis Cardinals have given their fans a long succession of glorious memories and milestones. Immortal Moments in Cardinals History, a magnificent collection of Cardinal highlights, revives the greatest moments in franchise lore, from the forgotten victories of four consecutive pennant winners in the 1880s right through the 2015 National League Central Division pennant. The cavalcade of names and milestones roll along in every page. Highlights include:

  • 3,000 hits for Lou Brock and for Stan the Man
  • October heroics by Pepper Martin, Jim Edmonds, and David Freese
  • home run feats by Albert Pujols, Mark McGwire, and Mark Whiten
  • no-hitters by Jess Haines, Paul Dean, and Bob Forsch
  • achievements of superstars like Enos Slaughter, Rogers Hornsby, and Yadier Molina
  • shining moments of lesser stars like Tom Lawless, Glenn Brummer, and Jose Jimenez

Compiled by leading historian Robert L. Tiemann with legendary Cardinal broadcaster Ron Jacober, the book reflects exhaustive research performed for decades. Their work receives a complement of rare and action-packed photos. The result is a wild and wonderful ride through Cardinal history that will delight and inform generations of fans.

Secret St. Louis

Whether you are piloting a simulated barge on the Mississippi River, exploring the hidden history of Abraham Lincoln’s bizarre sword fight in St. Charles County, or eating a ten-pound apple-pie in Kimmswick inspired by the Great Flood of 1993, it is hard to get bored with a copy of Secret St. Louis: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure. By turns wistful and whimsical, this is a book that answers the questions you never knew you had about St. Louis while taking readers on a whirlwind tour through ninety-seven unique but little-known spaces and places that can’t be found anywhere else. A tourist handbook for people who thought they never needed one, Secret St. Louis provides a scavenger hunt of hidden gems traversing the somber, strange, surprising, and silly locales which define the culture and history that make St. Louis such a diverse and amazing place to call home. From Weldon Spring to Wildwood, Overland to O’Fallon, Bellefontaine to Bridgeton, this is an exploration of St. Louis’s odds and ends like no other.

Author Bio:
David Baugher is a freelance writer and researcher whose work has appeared in a variety of St. Louis publications including the Webster-Kirkwood Times and the St. Louis Beacon. His first book, Once Upon a Time in St. Louis, co-authored with local artist Marilynne Bradley, was published in 2014. A longtime journalist and enthusiast for odd information, he is also the former author of weirdfactblog.com.
