#20 Lou Brock
St. Louis Cardinals
National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum Edition - Generation Five OYO minifigure.
Lou Brock stole 938 bases, and was known as "the one who got away" to many opponents. But stealing bases is not the only reason this ball player is a Hall of Famer.
Brock started as an outfielder for the Cubs in 1962, he was one of four players to hit a home run into the center-field bleachers at the Polo Grounds in New York. He was traded to the Cardinals in 1964, to replace retired outfield Stan Musial who is also a member of the Hall of Fame. Brock’s batting average increased to .348 and he stole 38 bases in the remainder of that season. By May of 1971 his batting average was .405 leading him to end his career as the 14th player in MLB history to reach the 3,000-hit club and with a batting average that surpassed the .300 mark 8 times!
The St. Louis Cardinals retired his jersey number in 1979, an honor that had previously only been awarded to three other Cardinal players.
Each figure comes with a team cap, bat, glove, ball, stand, and unique OYO DNA number.
