1955 - 1968

When MLB went about selecting its All Century Team, The Sporting News (long time based in St. Louis) selected an all time St. Louis Cardinals team--one that would give the all time MLB team a good contest.

Known for his leadership, Boyer served as Captain of the Redbirds in the early 1960's and won the National League MVP in 1964 when he hit 24 homers and drove in 119 runs. His critical grand slam home run in Game 4 of the 1964 World Series propelled the Cardinals to the World Championship over the Yankees.
