The Plaza of Champions is officially opened.
The Stadium Club is completely renovated.
The club annouces the return of grass for the 1996 season.
The St. Louis Rams use the ballpark for 4 games while the "Dome" is being readied.
The players strike from 1994 delayed the start of the regular season.
The Cards thought they had put the right pieces together this year to take the pennant. The brought in Danny Jackson, Ken Hill, and All-Star Scott Cooper, but things just didn't work out. Joe Torre was fired and Mike Jorgensen was picked to finish the season.
The Cards had one of the best outfields, Ray Lankford, Brian Jordan, and Benard Gilkey, as well as one of the best bullpens in the league anchored by Tom Henke.
The Cards have new owners as A-B sells the team.
After the end of the season, the Birds name Tony LaRussa as their new manager.
Tom Henke earns the Rolaids Relief Man award in his only season with the Cards. It is also his last season before he retires.
