St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer Lou Brock has reportedly passed away.
Brock is reported to have died Sunday afternoon. He is said to have been battling multiple medical conditions near the end of his life. However, the exact circumstances of his death is still unclear. He was 81.
Brock was a living legend in Missouri, as he’s best known as one of the greatest Cardinals players ever who helped lead the franchise to a World Series title in 1964 – the same year he was traded to the team from the Chicago Cubs.
He was a major factor to them winning the fall classic again in 1967, racking up a then-historic number of hits and stolen bases.
He was a 6-time All-Star, 2-time World Series champ, had over 3,000 hits to his name and was a first-ballot HOF inductee. He goes down in the books as one of the greats.
He could be remembered for leading the National League as the all-time greatest base stealer (ever) with a whopping 938 stolen bases through his 19-year career.
He’s survived by his wife, Jacqueline, and his son, Lou Jr.
