Following game 7 of the 2011 World Series in St. Louis:
Joe Torre, former major league player, manager, and future Hall-of-Famer. Currently is Executive Vice President for Baseball Operations for Major League Baseball. He left with a former teammate, Bob Gibson. Gibson doesn't stop for anyone. Period.
"The Big Hurt," Frank Thomas, former major league slugger for the White Soxs, A's, and Jays.
Tim Kurkjian, ESPN baseball analyst and former Sports Illustrated writer. Congratulated me on the Cardinals win and said "it's a great day to be a Cardinals fan."
Dave McKay, Cardinals first base coach, "behind bars."
John  Rooney, one half of the Cardinals radio broadcasting team.
Mike Shannon, current Cards radio broadcaster and former Cardinal player.
Steve Spagnuolo, current head coach of the St. Louis Rams.
Rick Sutcliffe, Cy Young Award and Rookie of the Year Award winner. The Missouri native pitched for the Cards and Cubs and three other teams. One of baseball's "good guys."
Bobby Valentine, former major league player and manager, and current ESPN analyst. He was drafted first by the Dodgers in the 1968 Draft.
