Highlights:

 

They said it... Fun facts:

The season starts with a new outfield wall from wagon-gate to wagon-gate.  The new wall shortens the distancs by 10 feet in hopes of increasing offense, however only 7 additional home runs are hit into the new area.  (The wall will last until the start of the 1977 season.)

The game times for April, May and September, are moved to 7:30pm in hopes that more kids would be able to attend the games.

All three Cruz brother, Jose, Hector, and Tommy, played for the Cardinals in 1973.

Joe Torre hits for the cycle on 6/23 at Pittsburgh, collecting the single with two outs in the ninth.
