It was a privilege to know and learn from one of baseball’s best, Red Schoendienst. Truly one of the greatest mentors in the game. He always made time for me and I will cherish the great times we spent together. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. pic.twitter.com/c3UDDBx3lF
Red Schoendienst was with Grampa and his best pal Joe Garagiola that day in 1942 when they all tried out for the #STLCards. Branch Rickey passed on Gramp, signed Red and Joe, and the rest is history. But the friendships lasted their lifetimes! #LoveRed2 #MLB #Yankees @Yogi_Museum pic.twitter.com/dUalqBmqHo

Red Schoendienst & Stan Musial in their red blazers at @Cardinals games was our chance to see baseball royalty and history. Such a joy, such gentlemen.
Sad that time is over, happy we had Red so long.
