    Post Hall of Famer Red Schoendienst dies at 95

    https://www.mlb.com/news/hall-of-fam...es/c-280117310

    Red Schoendienst, a Hall of Famer who played 15 of his 19 Major League seasons with the Cardinals and later managed the club from 1965-76, passed away at the age of 95 on Wednesday.

    "Red was one of the greatest Cardinals of all time, and a beloved member of the Cardinals organization for over six decades," said Cardinals Principal Owner & Chief Executive Officer William O. DeWitt, Jr. "His influence on this organization cannot be overstated. Red was a great player, a great manager, and a wonderful mentor to countless players, coaches, and members of the front office. He was also a fan favorite who connected with millions of Cardinals fans across multiple generations. He will be sorely missed."

    Schoendienst is survived by his four children, Colleen, Cathleen, Eileen and Kevin; eight living grandchildren (he had 10 total grandchildren); and seven great grandchildren. He was the oldest living member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

    "Red Schoendienst was one of the most beloved figures in the rich history of the St. Louis Cardinals, the franchise he served for 67 years," Commissioner Rob Manfred said. "He was a 10-time All-Star second baseman, a World Series champion as a player with the 1946 Cardinals and the 1957 Milwaukee Braves, and a championship-winning manager with the 1967 Cardinals. Red was a teammate, manager, and friend of some of the greatest players in the history of baseball.

    "The connection between Red and the fans of St. Louis spanned multiple generations and he was a wonderful ambassador for our game. On behalf of Major League Baseball, I extend my deepest condolences to Red's family, his many friends and admirers throughout our game, and Cardinals fans everywhere."
