On This Date in Cardinals History; Nov. 10, 1971

On this date 41 years ago Cardinals third baseman Joe Torre was named the National League MVP. His league leading .363 batting average and 137 RBIs were impressive. But Torre's all around high level of play was an especially exceptional accomplishment because of the fact that it was Torre's first season as a full time third sacker.
