One of my favorite players of all time. He was one of the reasons I became such a huge Cardinal fan.
I will never forget listening on a little transistor radio late at night when he broke the all time stolen base record out in San Diego. I let out a little yell into my pillow but still woke up my Mom and Dad.
He seemed such a gentleman, always had time to encourage others.
He was born in El Dorado, he said he grew up a Cardinal fan like some many in Arkansas, listening to KMOX late at night.
I can’t say it better than what Albert Puhols said in his Twitter feed:
My prayers are with Jackie and the Brock family tonight.
Lou now enters into the glory of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. “Well done, thy good and faithful servant.”
You will be missed, my brother. Until we meet again.
