Cardinals baseball has become more than a pastime in St. Louis. The association with baseball and all things red is a regional identification, a rite of summer, a “best baseball town” way of life. The phenomenon is rooted in nearly 130 years of history, unforgettable eras, and legendary players. But no decade is more responsible for igniting the passion and pride than the 1980s. Detailed in spectacular pictures and memorable tales, Celebration takes you there, back to the decade of “Whiteyball,” back to stolen bases, “Secret Weapons”, and “Go Crazy!” magic, back to when Cardinals baseball was breathtaking. Born in St. Louis, author Dan O’Neill has been an award-winning feature writer and columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, MSNBC.com, and numerous publications.
