Monthly W-L  














Games I attended this season:

Date Game # Opponent Score Seat Price
4/5 1 Pirates 7-1 L General admission  





A new, state-of-the-art scoreboard system is in place for the start of the season.  There is a 22x30 foot color video screen and a 22x44 matrix board.

The metric distances are removed from the outfield walls.

Bob Forsch pitches his second no-hitter of his career, a 3-0 win over Montreal.  (9/26)

Willie McGee won his first gold glove and Ozzie Smith won his fourth.

On the April 5th home-opener, after the Cardinals had won their ninth title the year before, Bob Forsch surrendered three Pirate home runs.  The Pirates battered the Cardinals 7-1

The April 17th game is postponed due to snow!

The Cards steal 9 bases against the Giants on 7/27.
