Manager White Herzog, who led Cardinals to World Series win in 1982, dies

NY – Whitey Herzog, the gruff and witty Hall of Fame manager who guided the St. Louis Cardinals to win three league titles and a World Series in the 1980s when he perfected a complex and exciting strategy known as “Whiteyball“, passed away. She was 92 years old.

Cardinals spokesman Brian Bartow said Tuesday that the family informed them of Herzog’s death. The team is unsure if he passed away Monday night or Tuesday. Herzog attended Busch Stadium on April 4 for the home opener.

Known for his haircut and love of chewing tobacco, Herzog joined the Cardinals in 1980 and helped them end 10 years without winning the league title by adapting artificial turf and farther fences in the Busch Memorial Stadium.

A common victory for Herzog had a low score and difference of one run that they sealed in the final innings with the so-called “bullpen committee” of relievers who could leave after just one pitch or go momentarily to the outfield and then return to the mound.
