Lou Brock - Still King In St. Louis

cardinals busch retired local

When Brock retired after the 1979 season, the August Busch family, which owned the St. Louis Cardinals, gave Brock a pleasure boat named "King Louie of St. Louie." Today, Brock still rules his hometown, just as he ruled the basepaths and the record books during his baseball career. Though more than 20 years have passed since Brock retired, he remains a local legend and still works as an instructor for the Cardinals organization. He also lends his name and efforts to many local charities and was added to the St. Louis Walk of Fame in 1994. When Brock appears at Busch Stadium at Cardinals games, the crowd still chants, "Lou … Lou … Lou," in honor of the man who taught a whole city—a whole nation in fact—how to be a winner.
