Jack Buck, the revered voice of the St. Louis Cardinals, will get the biggest baseball send-off since Babe Ruth. For 4 1/2 hours today, the team will hold a public viewing of Buck's closed casket at home plate at Busch Stadium. The 77-year-old broadcaster died late Tuesday night after being hospitalized for more than 5 1/2 months. "He's a Cardinal," said Red Schoendienst, one of the team's six living Hall of Famers. "If he was a ballplayer, with his timing, he'd probably have been a .400 hitter.

Cards manager Tony La Russa had never seen anything like what occurred Monday at Busch Stadium. Outfielder Matt Holliday called time and was forced to leave the game after a large moth flew into his right ear and got stuck. Holliday was manning his left field spot as usual with two outs in the eighth inning when the moth, without warning, flew straight into his ear. After attempting to evict the moth with his finger, Holliday soon realized that he was going to need some help.

When he hit the ball, the sound was overwhelming. Not the crack of the bat, which was clear and distinctive. Some other sound, less defined but powerful, like the sound of 25,000 balloons losing all their air at once. Pete Incaviglia took one step out of the batter's box and stopped. He watched the ball soar into the humid air, up and up until it came to rest nearly a tenth of a mile away, in the upper deck beyond left field at Busch Stadium. The blast was so monumental - only two or three other players had ever hit a baseball that far - that the Cardinals didn't even mind Incaviglia's breaking an unwritten rule by standing there for a long moment to admire his work.

Although there have not been any squirrel sightings at Citizen Bank Park so far this season, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said after Wednesday night's game that he loved having squirrels around - to hunt. "There's not too much I can do about a squirrel running across the field," Manuel said after a squirrel interrupted play for the second straight night at Busch Stadium. "Of course, being from the South and being a squirrel hunter, if I had a gun there, might have did something.

Just when things seemed to be looking up for baseball, Anheuser-Busch dropped a stink bomb yesterday in the middle of the World Series. The giant brewery announced it was putting the St. Louis Cardinals up for sale, explaining that the team and the company were "no longer a comfortable fit. " Anheuser-Busch has owned the Cardinals since 1953, four decades in which the Cardinals won six National League pennants and three World Series titles...

When the Braves arrived at Busch Stadium for a late afternoon workout yesterday, third baseman Chipper Jones wasn't on crutches and he didn't have a cast on his left foot. Jones fouled a pitch off the foot in the eighth inning during Game 2 of the National League Championship Series against the Cardinals Thursday night. X-rays on the foot were negative. "He's walking pretty good," Braves manager Bobby Cox said. "I thought it might be broken, no fooling. He fouled it right off the top of the foot, which is the worst place.

The St. Louis Cardinals didn't know if they were coming or going. After beating the New York Giants yesterday, 27-24, in their final NFL home game in Busch Stadium this season - and, possibly, forever - several Cardinals delayed their departure from the playing field to wave to fans for what might have been the last time. "If we're leaving, I was waving goodbye," quarterback Neil Lomax said. "If we're staying, I was waving hello. " Coach Gene Stallings said, "I don't know if we'll be here or won't be here.

On the one hand, you have Busch Stadium. Vast. Slick. Clydesdales. Spuds MacKenzie. Lots of folks in red shirts. Great view of the moon, the stars and the arch. On the other hand, you have the Metrodome. Dim. Cozy. Decibels. Hankies flying. A shower curtain pretending it's a right-field wall. Lousy view of the moon, the stars and the arch. Great view of Calvin Griffith signing autographs. Busch Stadium. The Metrodome. So far they have had more of an impact on the 1987 World Series than the players.

Mark McGwire finally was on target. McGwire's major league-leading 21st home run landed in Big Mac Land, a section of seats in the upper deck in leftfield next to the foul pole, and Ron Gant had the game-winning RBI single in the 12th inning as the St. Louis Cardinals' beat the visiting San Francisco Giants, 4-3, last night. McGwire makes nothing off the promotional connection, although all 47,549 fans at Busch Stadium with a ticket get a free Big Mac sandwich at McDonald's.

ST. LOUIS - A.J. Burnett and the Phillies have had quite a turnaround since the righthander's last start. With Burnett pitching his first complete game since August, the Phillies defeated the Cardinals, 5-1, Friday at Busch Stadium in a game delayed 50 minutes at the start due to rain. The Phillies (34-38) have now won five in a row, all on the road. The last loss was Sunday's 3-0 defeat to the visiting Chicago Cubs, with Burnett the losing pitcher. Since then, the Phillies have enjoyed their best stretch of the season, sweeping the Atlanta Braves and now winning the first two of a four-game series in St. Louis.

ST. LOUIS - For Ryan Howard, there really is no place like home. Howard, who hails from St. Louis, has destroyed Cardinals pitching throughout his career. He continued that pattern Thursday, with a home run and three RBIs in a 4-1 victory over the Cardinals at Busch Stadium. The Phillies (33-38) have won four in a row for the first time since last June 2-6, when they won five consecutive games. They are four games out of first place in the NL East and have won eight of 10. Entering Thursday, Howard was hitting .368 (67 for 182)

ST. LOUIS - For Ryan Howard, there really is no place like home. Howard, who hails from St. Louis, has destroyed Cardinals pitching throughout his career. As the Phillies began a four-game series Thursday at Busch Stadium, Howard acknowledged that it has special meaning to play his hometown team. "This is where it all began for me," Howard said before the game. "There are just a lot of memories, seeing friends and family and stuff like that, and it is always a very good, relaxing feeling to come home.

ST. LOUIS - Stan Musial, 92, the St. Louis Cardinals star with the corkscrew stance and too many batting records to fit on his Hall of Fame plaque, died Saturday. Stan the Man was so revered in St. Louis that he has two statues outside Busch Stadium - one just wouldn't do him justice. He was one of baseball's greatest hitters, shining in the mold of Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio even without the bright lights of the big city. Mr. Musial, a native of Donora, Pa., won seven National League batting titles, was a three-time MVP, and helped the Cardinals capture three World Series championships in the 1940s.

Tony La Russa retired as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday, three days after winning a dramatic, seven-game World Series against the Texas Rangers. "I think this just feels like it's time to end it," the 67-year-old La Russa said during a news conference at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. The win over Texas was the third World Series championship of La Russa's 33-year career. The manager guided the Cardinals to the title even though they were 101/2 games behind Atlanta on Aug. 25 for the final playoff spot in the National League.

ST. LOUIS - Pushed to the brink, the St. Louis Cardinals saved themselves. A frantic rush to reach the postseason on the final day. A nifty pair of comebacks in the playoffs. Two desperate rallies in Game 6. Turns out these Cardinals were merely gearing up for a gigantic celebration. The Cardinals won a remarkable World Series they weren't even supposed to reach, beating the Texas Rangers, 6-2, in Game 7 on Friday night with another key hit by hometown star David Freese, the Series MVP, and six gutty innings from Chris Carpenter.

ST. LOUIS - Colby Lewis and his Texas teammates casually tossed a ball in left field, trying to avoid the tarp and any anxiety about being so close to the World Series championship. On this day, the only winner was the weather. Game 6 was postponed Wednesday because of an accurate wet forecast, delaying the Rangers' bid to clinch their first championship. Ahead three games to two, they can close out the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night. It's likely to be clear with temperatures in the low 50s at Busch Stadium.

ST. LOUIS - It's already been a productive postseason for Colby Lewis. Next up, a shot at the biggest prize yet. In Game 6 of the World Series tonight, Lewis gets the first chance to pitch the Texas Rangers to their first title. No doubt while pitching oh-so-carefully against Albert Pujols and the St. Louis Cardinals, he'll be leaning on past October triumphs. "Well, you definitely think when you're in a kid, you want to be in this position, be on this stage," Lewis said. "I think just being in the situation that we were last year throughout the playoffs gives you more of an edge, more relaxation.
