QUINCY — For those who grew up during the Whiteyball era, names like Ozzie and Willie had a special in their hearts. Those who lived through the 1960s and watched the St. Louis Cardinals win a pair of World Series titles will forever root for Gibby and Sweet Lou.

If you experienced World War II and the Korean War and held on to baseball as your pastime, Stan the Man, Country and Red were your heroes. If you weren’t born until the turn of the century, a new generation of Cardinals like Albert, Yadi and Waino made you fall head over heels for the Birds on the Bat.

So who is your favorite St. Louis Cardinals player of all-time?

Muddy River Sports Editor Matt Schuckman, whose fondest baseball memories occurred in the 1980s, and new Muddy River Sports Writer Shane Hulsey, who is 25-year-old Wentzville, Mo., native, tackle that topic for the latest episode of “The List.”

You hear a little bit of overlap, but you’ll be able to see how age influences the answers.
