'Incredible Cardinals' is a book for young baseball fans

A new children's book about the St. Louis Cardinals knocks it out of the park. It's called 'Incredible Cardinals' and it's complete with stories about Cardinal legends with illustrations to match.

The author Ed Wheatley has written other books about St. Louis sports teams, but this is the first one for children. Since there's a lot of books on the Cardinals, he wanted to find something unique to center the book around and he found just that- the left field wall where all the heroes are painted. The book is illustrated by Ed Koehler. Kids will learn about Red Schoendienst, a player who could do everything- he was not just a manager. Kids will also learn about the time Stan Musial hit 5 home runs in one day. Since the book is about legends, it brings back memories for parents and grandparents while making new ones for young fans.
