The St. Louis Cardinals 1994 season was the team's 113th season in St. Louis, Missouri and the 103rd season in the National League. The Cardinals went 53-61 during the season and finished tied for 3rd place with the Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League Central division, 13 games behind the Cincinnati Reds. The season was cut short due to the infamous 1994 player's strike.

Catcher Tom Pagnozzi won a Gold Glove this year.
