November 7 1837 Elijah Lovejoy became a martyr for freedom of the press. Lovejoy had moved his Presbyterian paper, The Observer, from St. Louis to Alton after his anti-slavery stance made him the target of violence. He continued to speak out, angering the citizens of Alton, who tossed three of his presses into the river. Lovejoy was shot while helping supporters defend a fourth press at the Godfrey and Gilham warehouse. Recovered from the river, part of one press is preserved today at the Alton Telegraph building. 1967 Orlando Cepeda was named as the unanimous choice for Most Valuable Player in the NL. In 1967, he had batted .325, hit 25 home runs, and drove in 111 runs, as the team he called “El Birdos” won the world championship. Orlando’s father Pedro, “The Bull” Cepeda, was called the greatest player in Puerto Rico. Orlando became known as the “Baby Bull.” 1967 “White Rabbitt” by the Jefferson Airplane was broadcast over 94.7 FM, marking the debut of the rock format on KSHE. The s .. ...

September 17 1936 Dan Kelly was born in Ottawa, Ontario. For over 20 years, he broadcast Blues games over KMOX, most of those with his partner, Gus Kyle. Jack Buck and Jay Randolph handled the Blues broadcasts the first year. Blues owner Sidney Salomon Junior enlisted the help of Robert Hyland to bring Kelly, the host of Hockey Night in Canada, to St. Louis. 1941 "The Man" played his first major league game. Stan Musial's first day in the majors was a good one, as he went two-for-four against Jim Tobin of the Boston Braves. Those were the first of his 3,630 career hits. 1937 Orlando Cepeda was born in Puerto Rico. The “Baby Bull” won the NL Rookie of the Year Award in 1958. The Giants traded him to the Cardinals for Ray Sadecki on the same day that Busch Stadium opened. He was a key part of the 1967 and 1968 pennant winning teams he dubbed “El Birdos.” The Birds traded him to Atlanta for Joe Torre after the 1968 season. Cepeda was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1999. 1958- Bill Banger ...
Our last featured game of the regular season was very important in the race for the final playoff spot. The 1921 Cardinals were led by the bats of Rogers Hornsby and Austin McHenry. The 1967 El Birdos earned that nickname from their MVP Orlando Cepeda. The El Birdos were nicked up down the stretch playing without Cepeda, Curt Flood and starting catcher Tim McCarver. Lou Brock and Bobby Tolan led off the game with walks. Brock was knocked in by Dave Ricketts, who would later be bullpen coach for the Cardinals. Tolan came home on a fielder's choice. A pair of errors followed by a walk hurt the El Birdos in the 3rd as Jaques Fournier cleared the bases with a double. The score after three was 3-2. The El Birdos pulled even in the fourth as a Mike Shannon double drove in Julian Javier. In the 5th Tolan put the El Birdos back on top with a homer that drove in Brock. Larry Jaster had settled down after the disastrous third having only given up on hit through six innings. He was relieved in the 7th af ...
May 8, 1966 - 48 years-ago today, the Cardinals played their last game at the first Busch Stadium, losing to the Giants, 10-5, in front of a crowd of 17,803. At 3:15 p.m., Alex Johnson bounced a grounder to shortstop, & San Francisco's Jim Davenport flipped to second baseman Tito Fuentes, who relayed to Orlando Cepeda for a game-ending double play. Ironically, after the game the Cardinals traded pitcher Ray Sadecki for Cepeda. The "Baby Bull" would go on to win MVP honors the following year, while leading the Redbirds to a world championship. Originally known as the Grand Avenue Ball Yard, it was later called Sportsman's Park, & renamed Busch Stadium in 1953, after Gussie Busch purchased the Cardinals from Fred Saigh & the ballpark from Bill Veeck. Since the 1920s, the Cardinals shared the park with, & were tenants of the American League St Louis Browns. Knowing he couldn't compete with the money of the Anheuser-Busch brewery, Browns owner, Bill Veeck sold the stadium to Busch, & moved his team to Baltimo ...

Eggshell Kabuki is 5-5 early in their new season. That puts them 3rd in NL East, 3 GB. New York leads the Division. Minnesota is 2nd, 1 GB. EK has been burned by harsh pairing often enough to note that NY and Min are the only two teams in the NL that are better than 6-4. EK has won both of their Road Series, but were swept by Pittsburgh of NL West in their first Home series. Pit is tied for the Lead in the West, but is only 5-5. On Saturday Morning EK evened their record with their first Home Win, 7-5, over Kansas City (3-7) of NL West. EK 1b Orlando Cepeda is off slowly, batting just .195. Yet, his 2 HR and 9 RBI both lead the team. This is a pattern that EK has seen before. RH Cepeda will bat for a while against RHP, switching spots in the Order with 3b SH Chipper Jones, .323-1 HR-8 RBI. EK is also keeping an eye on LF Vince Coleman. Coleman is batting only .184, but he has 7 Walks for an OBP of .311. Coleman has 10 Runs and 10 SB in the first 10 Games. He is producing in the lea ...
The “Baby Bull,” Orlando Cepeda, not only started the San Francisco Giants’ obsession with nicknaming players after young animals, but also propounded an interesting theory on how to get to Hall of Fame Los Angeles Dodger pitcher Don Drysdale: “The trick against Drysdale is to hit him before he hits you.”

Hey Cardinal fans. More reading Adams out to uphold Cards' rich first-base legacy JUPITER, Fla. -- Few positions in the game have legacies comparable to what exists in St. Louis at first base. Left field in Fenway, center field in the Bronx, pitching in Chavez Ravine, maybe first base in Detroit and, perhaps, after a few more years of Manny Machado, third base in Baltimore. The Cardinals have had their shortstops and their pitchers, but first base has been their spot over the decades. "Stan The Man" is foremost at first, of course; his legend doesn't diminish. If anything, it is reinforced each time a new man is assigned the position. When Albert Pujols declined the nickname "El Hombre," he did so out of deference to Musial. He understood; embraced the legend with reverence. Before Musial, Ripper Collins and Johnny Mize handled first base in St. Louis, and in between Musial and Pujols, assignments went to Keith Hernandez, Jack Clark, Bill White, Joe Torre, Orlando Cepeda, Mark McGwire and Gregg Jefferies ...
Today's opening day starting line-up blast from the past. We continue our series for the year of 1958. Finishing 3rd in the National League would be the new team in northern California, the San Francisco Giants. In their 1st season in San Francisco, they finish 12 games back of the league winning Milwaukee Braves. The Giants finish with a record of 80-74, under skipper Bill Rigney. Willie Mays leads the team in dingers with 29 and ties with Orlando Cepeda for rbis with 96. Johnny Antonelli leads the team in wins with 16.

Eggshell Kabuki (44-37) rallied for 2 Runs in the 7th and 2 Runs in the 8th on Monday Evening for a 5-2 Win vs St. Louis (27-54) in the rubber game of their series. St. Louis of NL West has the worst record in the NL. EK finishes the First Half in 2nd Place in both the NL Central and the NL Wildcard Races.

I just found my baseball autographed by the 1968 St. Louis Cardinals. It was given to me by Curt Flood, with the following signatures. I met Curt Flood because my mom and he worked on a local charity together in St. Louis, in 1967-68, called Aunts and Uncles. It looks great because it's been in the dark so many years! Signatures include Roger Maris, Tim McCarver, Mike Shannon, Orlando Cepeda (HOF), Steve Carlton (HOF), Bob Gibson (HOF) and Red Schoendienst (HOF). Great memories of 67-68 in St. Louis! Wonder if it's worth anything?

Tim McCarver mentioning his buddy,Orlando Cepeda,the 1967 MVP.After the Cardinals and Giants played the last game at Busch Stadium I,formerly known as Sportsman's Park,on May 8th,1966,the Redbirds acquired The Baby Bull from San Francisco for southpaw Ray Sadecki,who had won twenty games in 1964,but,would never return to that form.Cepeda,like Roger Maris,had two terrific years in St.Louis.The team won two pennants and one World Championship in 1967 and 1968.Cepeda was then traded to the Braves for Joe Torre.
On this day 45 years ago, I saw my first big league baseball game with my grandfather and uncle at Connie Mack Stadium in Philadelphia. I still have the box score. Phillies vs. St. Louis Cardinals. Steve Carlton started on the mound...for the Cardinals. In that lineup were Orlando Cepeda, Tim McCarver, Lou Brock and Roger Maris. Phils had Richie Allen, Johnny Callison and Cookie Rojas. Rojas hit the first HR I saw in person. That place was in a real bad section of town and was outdated. It was built in 1909 and it looked it. Although, I will say I never saw grass so green. The Phils scored two runs with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to win 4-3. That day made me want to go back for more and more. It also led me to wanting to be a sports writer or broadcaster which led directly to my career. Kind of a big day in my life.

At first word was Orlando Cepeda was the victim, and that would have been a huge loss because the 1967 National League MVP was a popular figure and a future Hall of Famer.

Just read today that they are planning on demolishing Candlestick Park following the close of the NFL season next year. Gotta say, it's going to be sad to see it go. I went to my first baseball game there in 1989 vs. the Cincinnati Reds and attended one of the last baseball games played there in 1999 vs. the New York Mets before the Giants moved to Pac Bell (now AT&T) Park. Candlestick Park hosted the 1962 and 1989 World Series, with the '89 series interrupted by the Loma Prieta Earthquake just prior to the start of Game 3. It also hosted the 1961 and 1984 All-Star Games, and served host to numerous greats from Willie Mays, to Willie McCovey, to Orlando Cepeda, to Will Clark, to Matt Williams, to Barry Bonds, among others. Also the home to the San Francisco 49ers, Candlestick Park hosted 8 NFC Championship games, including "The Catch" in 1982 (Joe Montana to Dwight Clark), "The Catch II" in 1998 (Steve Young to Terrell Owens), and "The Catch III" in 2012 (Alex Smith to Vernon Davis).

How about Orlando Cepeda ? He didn't get voted in over his 1975 drug conviction. Had to wait for Vets committee to get in.
Who was the Orlando cepeda fan, just pulled an insert last night
Other possibilities: Hal Chase, Vern Stephens, Orlando Cepeda (who eventually got in), Pete Browning, Bill Dahlen, Don Newcombe.
My guess? By the BBWAA: Orlando Cepeda (who later got in), *** Allen, Hal Chase, Maury Wills, several others.

Hoping they elect Craig Biggio to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Not only was he a great second baseman, outfielder, catcher (very versatile) but he was top shelf OFF the field. Always a gentleman to his fans, and always had time to sign autographs and say hello to others. I saw him first hand from my 10 seasons with the Cubs and he is truly one of the best guys ever to play the game. Good luck, Craig, in getting into the Hall when the vote comes out soon. You deserve it.

Back at the scene of the worst post-World Series mayhem, there were no buses being destroyed — or any vehicles at all. But they would soon arrive, carrying the heroes of this and prior generations — Willie Mays, Orlando Cepeda, Will Clark and Barry Zito.
Watching the Giants' Victory Parade. The Panda, "Crazy Eyes" Hunter Pence, "the Freak" (Tim Lincecum), the Beard, a true San Francisco team replete with characters. Also saw Orlando Cepeda the Giants Hall-of-Famer who is a Buddhist member.
Orlando Cepeda, inductee into the American National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum
Love you Giant groupies! Been one since the 60's. Okay, either '62 or '63...which one was it? Danny Kaye was singin' about Orlando Cepeda...
-- Sitting in a luxury box and watching Pablo Sandoval hit his third home run, Orlando Cepeda, who hit home runs twice in World Series games, talked about the "great feeling," and said a player knows as soon as the ball hits the bat. Cepeda called the Giants' push in the playoffs, especia...
Tonight's ceremonial 1st pitches will be thrown by HOFers Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Orlando Cepeda & *** Perry
Tim McCarver on Fox. He played for STL when I was a kid. He was my favorite player next to the great Orlando Cepeda. Go Giants !
To a all you ARod haters: let's think, Orlando Cepeda: drug smuggling and cocaine possession = Hall of Fame Ferguson Jenkins: arrested for cocaine and hashish = 2 week suspension and Hall of Fame Ray Lewis: inducted for murder, 12 month probation, $250,000 fine = 12 pro bowls and surely Hall of Fame Michael Irvin: 3 cocaine possessions, 3 alleged sexual assaults = Hall of Fame and NFL job ARod: admits using steroids before they were banned, plays hurt and doesn't hit for a week and handles it with class = media crucified to no end. Just shows us what's important??
Thurs. Evening game - [Los Angeles - Dodger Stadium] Los Angeles 4 Capitalist Kabuki 3 WP - 1998 Ramon Martinez (7-7), in relief Save - 2001 Victor Zambrano - 1904 Jesse Tannehill (19-14) star - LA c 1902 Heinie Peitz (.293-0 HR-66 RBI) - Peitz was 2-for-4 and his RBI Single, the first RBI in LA's 3-Run 2nd Inning rally was technically the Game-Winning Hit. Yet, I have a hunch that his role on the Mound in the 5th may have been more important. LA led 4-0 at that point. But LA Starter 1956 Herb Score (18-10, 3.58 ERA) Walked cf Mickey Mantle and rf Ivan Calderon to begin the Inning. 1B Orlando Cepeda struckout, but many thought that he did so swinging at Ball 4. A conference on the Mound resulted on LA calling Martinez from the Bullpen. Going less than 5 IP as the Starter made Score ineligible for the Win. With just 6 games left in the season, that decision may have cost him a shot at 20 Wins. I just wonder whether Peitz confirmed Score's control problem so clearly that the LA decision bec ...
Sun. Evening game - [Montreal - Jarry Park] Capitalist Kabuki 8 Montreal 7, 11 innings WP - 2009 Jonathan Broxton (3-5) Save - 1964 Bobby Shantz - 1909 Harry Otis (3-2) star - CK cf 1954 Mickey Mantle (.300-25 HR-108 RBI-120 R) - Mantle was 4-for-4, all Singles, with 2 Walks (86). His most important was a Single that led off CK's 9th. rf Ivan Calderon followed with a Double, scoring Mantle to tie the game 7-7. Calderon had 2 Doubles (29) and 3 RBI (102) in the game. CK 1B Orlando Cepeda had 1 Double (25) and 3 RBI (104). Cepeda Walked in the 11th and advanced on a pair of Singles, to score the Winning Run. Standings - CK (76-68) records their second straight series Win. The one before this was against NL Wildcard Leader Los Angeles (85-59) of NL Central. Yet, CK is now Last in NL East, 11 GB, 2 GB 3rd and 3 GB 2nd. outlook - CK must not lose heart. They are 4th in the Wildcard race, as well as the NL East. Most recently they have been overtaken by pre-season favorite Los Angeles of NL ...
I am going to the game today (have goosebumps thinking about it) with Luis, Kelsey and Ryan. I think often we get as nervous as the players. After all, how many of them have been Giants fans since Orlando Cepeda Jim Davenport Ruben Gomez Jim King Willie Kirkland Willie Mays Danny O'Connell Daryl Spencer Valmy Thomas were the starters in their first game in their first year in SF (1958).
A-Rod is hitless in 13 AB in winner-take-all postseason games, most among any player. Ted Simmons & Orlando Cepeda are next with 11 AB

I'll be rooting for the St. Louis Cardinals today! My Aunt Lucille in Illinois always made sure I got to see the Cards growing up. I was blessed to see Stan Musial, Bob Gibson, Orlando Cepeda, Steve Carlton, *** Groat, Lou Brock, Tim McCarver, Curt Flood, Ken Boyer, Joe Hoerner and even Roger Maris in a Cardinal uniform. They even had a back up catcher named Bob Eucker! GREAT memories in St. Louis watching baseball!

Two Great Athletes and champions of humanity. Orlando Cepeda and Roberto Clemente and Hank
It was on this date in 1969 ~ the Amazing Mets after being swept by the Astros (their nemesis) 9.5 gb the Cubs, they made up 18 games in the standings, and Won the NL EAST by 8.5 games, beat Henry Aaron, Rico Carty, Orlando Cepeda, Joe Torre, and Phil Niekro's Braves, and beat Frank Robinson, Brooks Robinson, Jim Palmer, Mike Cuellar, Davey Johnson and the O's for the World's Championship. Never say Never
It's bat day here and some kids in the stadium bar (!) nearly pulled an Orlando Cepeda on me. Fun times for all!
1999 Nolan Ryan, Robin Yount, George Brett, Nestor Chylak, Orlando Cepeda, Frank Selee and 'Smokey' Joe Williams are enshrined in the HOF.
When I heard the news that my San Francisco Giants had traded Orlando Cepeda to the St. Louis Cardinals for Ray Sadecki, I reacted as any typical Giants fan would. I threw a shoe out the dorm...
Greetings Everyone, Well, we're almost at the halfway point of this year's baseball season, and the Giants are in first place in the NL West. As most of you may know, the Giants have been notorious for making bad trades through the years. I mean, who could forget Orlando Cepeda for Ray Sadecki for God's sake. How about George Foster for Frank Duffy? *** Perry for Sam McDowell? Anyway, the list goes on & on as you well know. Last winter the Giants traded left handed pitcher Jonathon Sanchez for outfielder Melky Cabrerra. Well, we know what Melky has done this year: He's hitting over .350, leads the Major Leagues in hits, was voted in as a starting outfielder in the All Star Game, etc., etc. Now let's take a look at what Sanchez has done. In his last start against the Minnesota Twins, who are dead last in the AL Central (not exactly Murderer's Row with the bats) by the way. He pitched 4-1/3 innings. Gave up 10 hits, 6 runs (all earned), walked 6, & struck out 4. His record is 1-4, and his ERA is ...
how about a FollowFriday for Giants HOFer Orlando Cepeda? brett pill has 5x the # of followers
Mike Trout, assuming he remains healthy, is on his way to making history and here is why: Between 1871 and 2012 there have been only 18 players, with a minimum of 600 plate appearances (PA), who were age 20 or younger in their Rookie year. Mike Trout, based on the assumption that he will play another 95 out of the remaining 100 games on the MLB schedule, is projected to make another 432 PA’s (Currently he has 182 PA’s/40 Games = 4.55 PA/Game * 95 Games = 432.25 PA’s) for a grand total of 614 PA’s. So what is so special you ask? Let’s look to the numbers! Out of that group of 18 young men, only five of them hit for an AVG of .300+: Ted Williams (.327), Orlando Cepeda (.312), Stuffy McInnis (.312), Vada Pinson (.310), and Rogers Hornsby (.306). Mike Trout, over his first 40 games, is hitting a remarkable .354 AVG! Even if you assume his .411 BAPIP is unsustainable and his AVG falls, Trout has a legitimate chance of exceeding Ted Williams .327 AVG in his rookie season! Williams head might be turnin ...

1967 was better than 2011. Red Schoendienst (mgr), Lou Brock, Steve Carlton, Orlando Cepeda, Bob Gibson... all HOFers.
Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! Did a little research and found the Braves batting lineup this day in 1970. Sonny Jackson SS, Tony Gonzalez CF, Hank Aaron RF, Rico Carty LF, Orlando Cepeda 1B, Felix Millan 2B, Clete Boyer 3B, Bob Didier C, Phil Niekro P Not too bad, three hall of famers in the lineup. Braves beat the Cubs 3-2. Hank Aaron hit a first inning homer. The game started at 8:05 and I was born around 8:25 or so, which means shortly after Hank's homer. Not a bad way to break into the world in my opinion!
