Congrats to the White Rat to make it to the Hall of Fame. I am also happy to report that the Cardinals have also retired his jersey number 24.
The announcement was made today by Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. at a party for Herzog in Cooperstown.
The official ceremony will be next Saturday night at Busch Stadium before the Cardinals’ play the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Whitey’s number 24 is now the 11th number to be retired by the Cardinals
