Today’s “Fantasy Coach Card” is none other than beloved St. Louis Cardinal legend Red Schoendienst, player, coach and manager for the organization and a true baseball lifer:
Schoendienst first put together a 19-year Hall of Fame career between
1945 and 1963, winning a championship with the Cards as well as the
Milwaukee Braves in 1957, before coaching and then managing St. Louis
from 1965 to 1976, winning yet another championship in 1967, with a spot
managing gig in 1980 and then 1990 all while coaching the team in
between, including the 1982 season, giving him a FIFTH championship in
his illustrious career.
Believe it or not, 2015 marked the 70th consecutive year in Major League ball as a player, manager or coach!
