The Cardinals won their ninth World Series title in 1982 with a 7-game win over the Milwaukee Brewers. The next year, manager Whitey Herzog opened up his clubhouse to the 5 On Your Side cameras for an all-access pass.

In a 1983 game against the Houston Astros at Busch Stadium, 5 On Your Side's Art Holliday got a front-row seat for a masterclass in baseball managing.

Holliday placed a microphone on the colorful Cardinals manager, and let the cameras roll. What he got was a classic St. Louis sports story.
