Lou Brock was a left fielder for the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1960s and 1970s. His last season of play was 1979. He batted .293 in 19 seasons, amassing a total of 3021 hits.
Blessed with great speed and baserunning instincts, Brock helped the Cardinals win the World Series in 1964 and 1967, defeating the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox, respectively, before a Series loss to the Detroit Tigers in 1968.
In 1967, Brock became the first player to steal 50 bases and 20 home runs in the same season.
Brock held the record for career stolen bases (938) until it was broken by Rickey Henderson. He led the National League in stolen bases seven times, with his best year being 1974 in which he stole 118 bases (a new single-season record, also later broken by Henderson).
Brock was named the 1967 National League Babe Ruth award, the 1974 Major League Player Of The Year, the 1975 Roberto Clemente Award, the 1977 Lou Gehrig Memorial Award, and the 1979 Hutch Award.
He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985. His number 20 was retired by the St. Louis Cardinals. In 1999, he ranked Number 58 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players, and was nominated as a finalist for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team. After retiring from baseball, Brock prospered as a businessman, especially as a florist in the St. Louis, Missouri area.
