The St. Louis Cardinals 1993 season was the team's 112th season in St. Louis, Missouri and the 102nd season in the National League. Under their manager Joe Torre, the Cardinals went 87-75 during the season and finished 3rd in the National League East Division, ten games behind the NL Champion Philadelphia Phillies. This was the final season in the NL East for the Cardinals, before their move to the NL Central for the following season.


Regular season[edit]

Reliever Lee Smith became baseball's all-time saves leader this year, which has since been surpassed.

On September 7 at Riverfront Stadium, Mark Whiten hit four massive home runs and had twelve runs batted in against the Cincinnati Reds.[3] In the process, Whiten tied two Major League records in one game.

Gregg Jeffries finished third in the NL in batting (.342) and stole 46 bases, a club record for a first baseman.
