St. Louis Cardinals

All Time Manager

Whitey Herzog

Whitey Herzog

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.

The "White Rat" revolutionized Cardinals baseball with "Whiteyball" in the 1980's, winning the World Championship in 1982 and National League pennants in 1985 and 1987. Herzog's style relied on speed and defense, using the running game to manufacture runs--it suited the Cardinals and their home park well, establishing Herzog as a managerial "genius."
