On This Date in Cardinals History: Jan. 14, 1988

This day 25 years ago was one of the darkest in Cardinals history. The Redbirds, who let slugger Jack Clark walk away as a free agent without putting up a fight, decided it would be an acceptable substitute on Jan. 14, 1988 to sign Bob Horner away from the Yakult Swallows of the Japanese Central League where he played the 1987 season.
