  • Hall of Famer Lou Brock had a surprise 75th birthday celebration recently at Norwood Hill Country Club.

Among those in attendance were well wishers announcer and hall of famer Mike Shannon, former Cardinals player Ted Savage, Michael McMillan president of Urban League of Metro St. Louis, Ameren’s Missy and Richard Mark, Cardinals owners John and Ellen Wallace, Joe and Jeanne Abernathy who is Vice President of Busch Stadium Operations and hall of famer and pal Red Schoendienst. Diane’s Scoop: In order for Jackie, Lou’s wife to get Lou Brock to come to his surprise birthday party, she made up a story is which Lou thought he was standing in for our towns Sam Fox who could not make a dinner engagement on behalf of Old Newsboys, a charity that both are very much involved in. Of course Lou Brock said he would pinch hit for the cause! Next month Michael McMillan president of Urban League of Metro St. Louis will be attending the National Urban League convention. While there he will be celebrating his birthday by having dinner with the fabulous singer, entertainer Chaka Kahn! Lisa and Mike Walsh are very proud parents of recently graduated son, Kevin Walsh from University of Dayton who already has a job in IT in Chicago! Lee Donia Hay, Lou’s sister in law who is also 75 says she stays in such great condition by doing lawn work. Red Schoendienst said he just came from the baseball game and rushed over to the birthday celebration because he doesn’t want to miss a thing, especially Lou’s birthday! The publisher of St. Louis Post Dispatch Ray Farris and his wife Pam share the same date of Lou Brock’s Birthday only it’s their wedding anniversary and they have been married for 31 blissful years! Mike Shannon says that one of Lou Brock’s many accomplishments was that he stole 938 bases in his career without ever landing on the disabled list! That is quite an accomplishment indeed! Here’s to our town’s hall of famer Lou Brock, may you have many more happy birthdays!
