Garagiola’s credentials are impressive. A journeyman catcher for nine seasons with the Cardinals, Pirates, Cubs and Giants, his interest in broadcasting piqued in 1950 when he tuned in to his team’s radio broadcasts while convalescing from a shoulder separation. Following his retirement as a player after the 1954 season, he was offered a job with the Cardinals’ broadcast crew. In the booth, Garagiola possessed a marvelous, easy-to-like approach to the game and a friendly, folksy manner. His progression behind the microphone included the Game of the Week, All-Star Game and World Series with NBC-TV throughout the 1960s, New York Yankees telecasts with from 1965-67 (sharing the mike with such greats as Red Barber, Phil Rizzuto, and Jerry Coleman), NBC’s Today Show from 1962-73, and California Angels telecasts in 1990. Garagiola currently does TV broadcasts for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

George Howard Brett (born May 15, 1953), is a retired American baseball third baseman who played 21 years in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Kansas City Royals. Brett’s 3,154 career hits are the most by any third baseman in major league history and 16th all-time. Brett is one of four players in MLB history to accumulate 3,000 hits, 300 home runs, and a career .300 batting average (the others being Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Stan Musial). He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1999 on the first ballot. Brett is the only player in MLB history to win a batting title in three different decades.

The captain of the dominating Dodgers teams of the 1950s, scrappy Pee Wee Reese was a quiet force both on the field and in the clubhouse. An outstanding defensive player, he led the National League in putouts four times, double plays twice and fielding percentage and assists once each. For almost a decade, he and Jackie Robinson formed one of baseball’s top double-play combinations. Reese led Brooklyn to seven pennants in his 16 seasons, his final year coming in Los Angeles, and never missed an inning of the seven World Series in which he participated.

In 1936, in Columbus, Ga., after being rebuked by manager Eddie Dyer, Enos Slaughter vowed never to loaf on a ball field again. His newfound commitment made him one of the game’s greatest hustlers. Nicknamed Country, Slaughter used a flat, level swing to become a consistent batter, hitting .300 or better 10 times, and an outstanding contact hitter in clutch situations. He achieved instantaneous fame for his mad dash home from first base on Harry Walker’s double, which won the 1946 World Series for the Cardinals over the Red Sox.
