New turf is installed for the start of the season. The new turf has a much richer color making it easier to see the ball. Also, a new pitching mound was added that could be hydraulically lowered below field level for non-baseball events.
Willie McGee hits for the cycle on June 23rd. (He's the only Cardinal to hit for the cycle in the 80s.)
On July 18th, Darrell Porter hits a 2 out, 11th inning, walk-off grand-slam home run to beat the Giants.
The team swipes 220 bases to break a club record set just the year before.
Joaquin Andujar is the Cardinals first 20-game winner since 1977.
Bruce Sutter set the NL record for saves in a season (45). Rookie Terry Pendleton hit .324 after joining the club in July.
Terry Pendleton made his major league debut on July 18th with a three hit game.
