HOF Red Schoendienst dies at 95.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

HOF 2B Red Schoendienst passed away at the age of 95. Schoendienst played for the St. Louis Cardinals 1945-1956, winning the 1946 WS with the Cardinals. He was with the New York Giants 1956-1957 then was dealt to the Milwaukee Braves. He was with the Braves through 1960 then went back to the Cards from 1961-1963. He got into the 1957 and 1958 WS with the Braves, winning it in 1957 and losing it in 1958. In that 1957 WS, on a pickoff throw to second, Schoendienst jumped for the errant throw and landed on Mickey Mantle’s right shoulder. The damage was intensive and affected Mickey’s left-handed swing for the rest of his career. After the 1958 season, it was discovered that Red had played the 1958 season with tuberculosis. He missed almost all of the 1959 season as a result, and the Braves lost the pennant in a playoff to the Dodgers.

Schoendienst managed the Cards to the WS title in 1967 and to the NL pennant in 1968.

Schoendienst was a 10x all-star. A 2x WS champ. Four times, he finished in the top 10 for MVP. 10th in 1949, 10th in 1952, 4th in 1953, 3rd in 1957.

His 162 g. average was .289-6-57. OPS+ 94.

In 19 postseason games, he hit .269.

He managed the Cardinals from 1965-1976, then had interim stints in 1980 and 1990. He went 1041-955, winning percentage .522, as a manager.

He was named to the HOF by the Veterans’ Committee in 1989.

At the time of his passing, Schoendienst was the oldest living Hall-of-Famer. That title now goes to Tommy Lasorda. Whitey Ford is the second oldest living Hall-of-Famer.
