Highlights:

 

Ozzie becomes the all-time NL leader in games played at shortstop.

Lee Smith is traded to the Yankees for Rich Batchelor.  (8/31)

The area of most concern heading into the season, the offense, turned out to be the most productive area of the team in 1993.  The offense scored more runs and hit more home runs than other Cardinals' teams did in a long time.  However, the starting pitching fell apart in the second half of the season.  Injuries played a big part.

Gregg Jefferies led the team in stolen bases (46), batting average (.342), on-base percentage (.408), and slugging percentage (.485).  (Most stolen bases by a Cardinals first baseman.)

On September 7th, Cards outfielder Mark Whitten goes 4-for-5, with four home runs and 12 RBIs.  The home run performance puts him in company with 11 other players, including Lou Gehrig, Willie Mays, and Mike Schmidt.   The RBI tally has been equaled by only one other player in baseball history.   Jim Bottomley, also a Cardinal, did it in 1924.  He is the first Cardinal player to hit 4HRs in one game.

Ozzie Smith had 19 errors, but had a strong offensive year batting .288 with 53RBIs.

The Cards made a run at the Phillies in late July, but the pitching didn't hold up.  They eventually let Montreal move into second place.

Bob Tewksbury had almost as many wins (17) as walks given up (20).
