Cardinals Throwback Thursday: Manager Ken Boyer And More

Want a trip back in time — like to the interesting 1980 Cardinals season when Busch Stadium had Astroturf, TV graphics were basic by today’s standards, uniforms were tight and all the players wore stirrups?

Check out the video below.

It’s the Cubs (now those were bad uniforms) visiting the Cardinals on April 30, 1980, from the WGN-TV broadcast with Jack Brickhouse. The action picks up in the top of the third — and manager Ken Boyer gets ejected in the middle of the game. More details of the game are here.

If you have a bit of time and are hungry for baseball (and who isn’t at this point?) watch and enjoy! And, yes, the Cardinals win.
