Bob Forsch's Tales from the Cardinals Dugout
Bob Forsch's Tales from the Cardinals Dugout
by Bob Forsch, Tom Wheatley
Book Description: Offering readers more than just a sneak peek into the dugout, Bob Forsch's Tales from the Cardinals Dugout takes fans into the clubhouse, out to the bullpen, onto the mound, up to the batter's box, around the base paths, along for the ride to spring training, and maybe even on a fishing trip or two in this tribute to the long and storied tradition of St. Louis Cardinals baseball.

In his own witty style, Bob Forsch, known to many as "Forschie" during his playing days, has drawn from his exciting history with the Cardinals to bring fans stories that are laugh-out-loud funny, like his rookie gaffes and lifelong antics with his older brother Ken, a fellow big leaguer and no-hit artist. Other tales are poignant, like his tributes to St. Louis favorite Willie McGee, legendary broadcaster Jack Buck, and "The Cardinal Way" Some of the stories reveal inside tricks, like how to confuse sign stealers. Still more are rarely-told true confessions, like throwing at 2003 National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee Gary Carter, following Jim Kaat's tips for doctoring a baseball, or playing silly clubhouse pranks on the superstitious Joaquin Andujar.

Forsch also includes the story of the pre-victory party that helped the Cardinals win the 1982 World Series - not even manager Whitey Herzog knew about that one. These stories and many more come to life in Bob Forsch's Tales from the Cardinals Dugout. No Cardinal fan's bookrack should be without it.

Whitey's Boys: A Celebration of the 82 Cards World Championship
by Rob Rains, et al
Book Description: The St. Louis Cardinals last celebrated a World Championship in 1982, and that milestone is commemorated in WHITEY'S BOYS, a twentieth anniversary reminiscence of that great team and its players. This book is more than just a collection of memories from that special season, however. It also tells the story of what has happened to those players since that magical summer, updating their fans on where they live, what they're doing, and what's happened to them in the intervening years. Joaquin Andujar has returned to the Dominican Republic. Tom Herr's son Aaron, a frequent batboy for the team in 1982, is now playing in the Braves' farm system. George Hendrick is managing a team in the California League. John Stuper is the baseball coach at Yale. These and dozens of other players' stories are included in the book, as is, of course, the newest member of the Hall of Fame, Ozzie Smith. Written in the style of the classic THE BOYS OF SUMMER, and based entirely on first person interviews, WHITEY'S BOYS retraces all the great moments in the players' lives and talks about what their career has meant to them, especially now that it's over. Whitey Herzog has contributed stories and anecdotes about each of the players as well as written the foreword to the book.
