Bing Shakes Redbird Nest

June 6, 1969

Bing Devine keeps changing players around as if they were so many bubble gum cards. The Cardinals’ general manager ought to receive an award as the best friend the airlines ever had. Before Bing is through, the Redbirds’ 1968 pennant winners will have to hold a reunion soon if they want to reminisce about the

Larry Jaster, who no-hit the Dodgers in 1966, got the nod from manager Red Schoendienst for the first time this season as the first place Cardinals and second place Dodgers met in an early National League showdown.

Street & Smith’s: While speculation sizzles on how much damage the loss of Sandy Koufax will inflict on the Dodgers, let’s just suppose they had been without him last year. The Dodgers, winning the pennant by four and a half games, won 101, lost 61, Koufax either won or lost in all except five of

Baltimore – The Orioles enter the 1966 World Series full of confidence.

The champagne was finally open. But the Dodger players sat in front of their lockers as the press milled about the visitor’s clubhouse in Busch Stadium. The men with the notepads did not quite know what questions to ask, and the men in the baseball uniforms did not have any answers. Even Walt Alston had

The Los Angeles Dodgers departed home for their final road trip of the season. They left on a sour note as the Phillies swept the Dodgers. The Dodgers magic number stands at six so it was unlikely Alston’s troops could have clinched at home, but the team packed their bags with a certain air of

Since taking over at shortstop April 19, Clete Boyer has made all the plays. He’s gone into the hold, ranged far to his left, pulled off the pay coming in on easy rollers and, in doing all these things, showed off the strongest throwing arm of any shortstop in the league. The last time Boyer

After belting career homer number 500 off Chicago’s Bob Humphreys September 12 last year, Willie Mays continues to feast off Cub pitching.
