The St. Louis Cardinals, a Major League baseball (MLB) franchise based in St. Louis, Missouri, have competed in the National League (NL) since 1892, and in the American Association (AA) from 1882 to 1891.[a] They have won eleven World Series titles, one additional interleague championship and were co-champions (tied) in another prior to the modern World Series. Known as the Cardinals from 1900 to the present, the St. Louis franchise were also known as the Brown Stockings (1882), Browns (1883–98), and Perfectos (1899).[2]

A total of thirty-seven players and other personnel associated with the Cardinals have been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York. Of those, seventeen have been inducted as Cardinals and nine with the Cardinals logo on their cap. In addition, two separate awards – the Ford Frick Award and J. G. Taylor Spink Award – while not conferring the status of enshrining their recipients as members of the Hall of Fame, honor the works of a total of six sportswriters and broadcasters.[3][4]

The Cardinals also have a franchise hall of fame known as the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum located within Ballpark Village adjacent to Busch Stadium, the Cardinals' home stadium.[5]

Footnotes
  • a Although the American Association is considered a former Major League, only the Cardinals' regular season records, postseason records and World Series championships attained since their entrance into the National League in 1892 are the official totals considered part of their official Major League achievements.
  • b Has no insignia on his cap due to playing at a time when caps bore no insignia.
  • c Played for the AL St. Louis Browns, but not the NL St. Louis club. Because of their status as the only Major League team remaining in St. Louis, the Cardinals franchise chose to honor Sisler as a St. Louis-based player.
  • d Wears no cap.
