The 1992 season marked the 100th anniversary of the baseball Cardinals.
The Cardinals moved the fences in by about 10ft to enhance the offense. The height of the wall is lowered 2.5' as well as more generous padding. The wire basket is removed and flowers and small bushes are added between the first row of the bleachers and the wall.
New Astroturf is installed that is spongier and darker.
The Cards led the NL in batting average and fielding average, but couldn't put it together in the clutch. By mid-August, they couldn't keep up in the standings. They finished behind Pittsburgh and Montreal.
Both Pedro Guerrero and Andres Galarraga had been counted on for a great year, but both were injured early and never really made it back into playing form...
Bob Tewksbury was 16-5 and was among the top vote-getters in the Cy Young Award balloting. He allowed just 20 walks in 233 innings, which was the 5th best ratio of walks to innings since 1900.
Ozzie collects his 2,000th hit and 13th Gold Glove.
The Cardinals set a ML record for the most consecutive errorless games, going 16 straight contests, from July 30th to August 16th.
Catcher Tom Pagnozzi wins his 2nd Gold Glove making just one error all season.
On June 11th, the Cardinals hold a 100th year franchise celebration with a stage that rises 58 feet above the field.
