On this date in (future) Cardinals history, 1962

Lou Brock, who would be famously traded to the Cardinals two years later, took the field for the Cubs at the Polo Grounds in New York on June 17, 1962. The Base Burglar was best known for his speed. But on this day it was his power that made headlines. Brock, the day before his 23rd birthday, celebrated by cranking a 460-foot home run into the right centerfield bleachers 460 feet from home plate.
