because its an off day. a little history
Sept 10, xxxx

Quote:
1963 In the first inning of an 8-0 rout of the Cubs at Sportsman's Park, Cardinals left fielder Stan Musial becomes the first grandfather in big league history to hit a home run. The 42-year old new grandpa accomplishes the feat in his first at-bat since the birth of his grandson earlier in the day.


Quote:
1964 Baseball commissioner Ford Frick authorizes the Phillies, Yankees, White Sox and Orioles to print tickets for the World Series. Due to a historic late-season collaspe by Philadelphia, the surging Cardinals win the National League pennant on the last day of the season, and will play the Bronx Bombers in the Fall Classic


Quote:
1974 Lou Brock ties and then breaks Maury Willis' 12-year-old record single season stolen base record with his 104th and 105th swipes. The Cardinal left fielder’s thievery against the Phillies doesn’t help as the Redbirds drop the Busch Stadium contest, 8-2

another off day so.
sept 17, 1941

Stan Musial made his ML debut

Image

Quote:
1941 - Stan Musial has two hits in his Major League debut as the Cardinals beat the Boston Braves. Musial, who started the season in the Western Association (Class C), will hit .426 in 12 games.


Quote:
1968 - Gaylord Perry of the San Francisco Giants pitched a no-hitter against the St. Louis Cardinals for a 1-0 victory.


Quote:
1979 - Royals third baseman George Brett collects his 20th triple of the season in a 16-4 romp over the Angels. Brett becomes the sixth player ever, and the first since Willie Mays in 1957, to collect twenty doubles, twenty triples, and twenty home runs in the same season. He will finish with totals of 42, 20, and 23.

sept 28th
another off day so

Image

Quote:
1979 - Switch-hitting Cardinals shortstop Garry Templeton collects three hits against the Mets and becomes the first player to get 100 hits from each side of the plate. During the last nine games, he batted exclusively righthanded to set the record.



Quote:
1947 - On the season's last day, the St. Louis Browns, desperate for a ticket seller, bring announcer Dizzy Dean in to pitch against the White Sox. Diz gives up only three hits in four innings and laces a clean single in his only at bat, but a pulled leg muscle forces his retirement. The White Sox score all their runs in the ninth to win 5-2. Even with Diz, the game draws less than 16,000, and the Browns finish the year with only 320,000 attendance, less than half that of 1946.

Let's not let that [expletive] asswipe ruin everything we hold dear.
