Many people may not soon forget the amazing run the St. Louis Cardinals had in 2011 on their way to the World Series, but the storied Cardinals team history runs deeper than just one season. A magical season also occurred in 1982, where the Cardinals went 92-70 and won the National League East. If you remember, those were the days of just two divisions in each league. The Cardinals then went on to sweep the Atlanta Braves before they won in an epic seven game series versus the Milwaukee Brewers.
30 years later, the Brewers and Cardinals will play again as National League Central foes, and it is a fitting time to reflect on that 1982 season. The Cardinals have announced that more than 20 1982 Cardinals players will come to the three-game series at Busch Stadium to be honored this weekend (August 3-5).
