After a 15-year big league career, All-Star first baseman Will Clark announces his retirement. Clark ended his playing days with the Mark McGwire-less St. Louis Cardinals, giving St. Louis much-needed offense (.345, 12 home runs and 42 RBI) in a two-month span after being obtained from the Baltimore Orioles.
In his last game, Stan Musial helps the Cardinals beat the Reds, 3-2 at Busch Stadium, getting two hits in his final three at-bats. The ‘Man’ will retire with 3,630 hits, during his 22-year tenure with the Redbirds, collecting 1,815 in St. Louis, and the other 1,815 on the road.
