This week is Cardinals‘ week with our podcast featuring the St. Louis Cardinals being released on Friday, June 18th.  All Cardinal fans knew and loved Jack Buck (1924 – 2002).

Jack Buck was the beloved Hall of Fame broadcaster for the St. Louis Cardinals.  Buck would end each St. Louis win with the phrase “that’s a winner.”

On September 17, 2001, Buck read a poem that he wrote to a sold out Busch Stadium as Major League Baseball resumed after the terrorist attack.   That video with two others is below.
