Book of the Week: Commish & The Cardinals

This weekend's reading consisted of reading Commish & the Cardinals, a collection of articles written over the years by Hall of Fame sportswriter Rick Hummel.

As Bernie Miklasz writes in the opening, you heard Jack Buck's call, now read Rick's article. They go hand in hand.

I knew that DK's death was hard on the time but I did not realize that some of the players just were not able to play at all the day after in Chicago.

I got to relive the closing days at Busch Stadium in 2005, a night that kept getting postponed, kinda like Albert's alleged last at-bat at Busch this past year.

The book is technically out of print but you might find a copy on sale through the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website for $5.99 plus shipping.

For a Cardinals fan, it is a must have for your bookshelf.
