The 1934 World Series Championship team featured Hall of Famer Dizzy Dean and his brother Paul Dean. The brothers combined to pitch all 4 of the Cardinals victories in the 7 game series against the Detroit Tigers.In the regular season the team had 5 regulars bat at least .300 and a 30-game winner in Dizzy Dean.The Cardinals were known by their nickname “The Gashouse Gang” for their scrappy appearance and rough play amidst the Great Depression and in contrast of “wealthier” East Coast teams.

Bob Gibson and Tim McCarver were to the 60’s what Chris Carpenter and Yadier Molina were to the 2000’s. In the era before specialty relief pitching, Bob Gibson started 9 World Series games and completed 8 of them. McCarver was Gibson’s favorite catcher and caught all 7 of Gibson’s World Series victories. The pair won it all in ‘64 and ‘67 but fell short in ‘68. Bob Gibson won the World Series MVP for both his efforts in ‘64 and ‘67.

The Cardinals and Red Sox met in the 1946 World Series for the first time. The series is best remembered for this moment, with Game 7 tied 3-3 in the bottom of the 8th, Enos Slaughter scored all the way from 1st base off a double by Harry Walker to give the Cardinals a 4-3 lead and the Series. The play would be remembered as “Slaughter’s Mad Dash”.
