The ballpark sports a fresh look with a new color scheme, red, white and mostly blue covers the outfield wall, and most other parts of the stadium.  Also, new Busch Stadium logos are prominent throughout the ballpark.

Lonnie Smith leads the NL with 120 runs.

April saw a 12-game winning streak

In early May, David Green pulled a hamstring in a collision at first.  The Cardinals brought up a "temp,"  Willie McGee.

May saw injuries to Darrell Porter (broken finger), Gene Tenace (broken hand), Tommy Herr (torn leg muscle)

In August, slow-footed third-string catcher Glen Brummer steals home with 2 strikes on the batter and two outs in the bottom of the 12th for a 5-4 win.

On September 4th, Lonnie Smith stole five bases in a game against the Giants setting a franchise record.

On September 14th, Bruce Sutter gets Mike Schmidt to ground into a bases-loaded 1-2-3 double play that helps to save the game and seems to propel them towards the pennant.

September also saw a five game sweep of the Mets in New York.

On September 27th, Willie McGee hit an inside-the-park home run to help the Cards beat the Expos 4-2 to clinch the NL East.

Bruce Sutter becomes the first Cardinals' reliever to record 30 saves in a season.

Bruce Sutter was the NL Player of the Week for the week of Aug 29th and Sep 19th.

The Cardinals won the WS despite hitting a ML low 67 home runs during the season.  George Hendrick (19) and Darrell Porter (12) were the only Cardinals with more than 10 home runs this season.

Dane Iorg went 9 for 17 with five extra-base hits in the WS.

Butch Yatkeman ended his career as the Cardinals equipment manager this year after 50 years. (1932-1982)

In the Cards' opener in Houston, Darrell Porter tagged Nolan Ryan for a three-run homer in the first inning to spark a 14-3 win!

The Cardinals selected Terry Pendleton (Fresno State) in the 7th round of this years draft.
