    McGwire will appear at Busch finale
    By Rick Hummel
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    09/14/2005

    Record-setting slugger Mark McGwire, whose visits to Busch Stadium since his retirement in 2001 have been infrequent, is one of 100 or so former players expected for the final weekend at Busch Stadium Sept. 30 through Oct. 2.

    Among other special visitors scheduled to appear are Hall-of-Fame lefthander Steve Carlton; Lee Smith, the Cardinals' career-saves leader; former Gold Glove first baseman Keith Hernandez; former righthander Bob Tewksbury and former lefthander John Tudor.


    Playoff tickets go on sale Monday

    The good news for Cardinals fans is that they can begin ordering tickets on Monday morning, beginning at 9 o'clock, to the Cardinals' potential home games for the divisional series and National League Championship Series. Perhaps the better news is that they are the same price as last year.

    Buyers are limited to a maximum of six tickets per game for the divisional series and four per game for the NLCS. Orders may be made only by telephone at the Cardinals' charge line, 314-421-2400, or online at www.st.louiscardinals.com. No orders will be taken at the stadium or remote outlets.

    Prices range from $15 (standing room only) to $30 (outfield terrace boxes) for divisional series games, which begin either Oct. 4 or Oct. 5. The Cardinals could have as many three home games in the divisional series.

    Prices range between $20 (standing room only) to $55 (outfield terrace boxes) for the league championship series, which begins Oct.12. The Cardinals could have fourhome games in that series.


    Grudzielanek's back feels better

    After missing seven games with an injured disc in his lower back, second baseman Mark Grudzielanek was one of the few Cardinals to play all nine innings Wednesday.

    Grudzielanek, who had two hits, said, "I felt good. It was a very good day." . . . First baseman Albert Pujols also went nine after missing two starts with a strained muscle in his right leg.


    Around the horn

    Hall of Famer Stan Musial, who actually never played a regular game in the current Busch Stadium in its 40 years, pulled off his No. 6 from the right-field wall. When the Cardinals return in 10 days, No. 5 is expected to be pulled off by Pujols. . . Former Cardinals assistant trainer Brad Henderson, now head of the Pirates' training staff, received the Busch Stadium replica given to visiting teams upon the Pirates' last visit to Busch.

    Will he be on the juice, and can he play first if Pujols can't?

                I can't wait to hear the reception.....


                I expect more boos since Mark jumped the shark, and spewed, "I'm not here to talk about the past."

                  So, Tewks is now a lefthander, and Tudor throws righty now?

                  Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

                    Yes, their pitching arms were worn out, so they had to switch.

                      So, think Tudor could be talked into suiting up for the post-season?

                          He hasn't tested positive.

                          He did admit to using the "cream" and the "clear" by accident.

                          He was under the impression that it was flax seed oil.

                          Allegedly. (cough)

                            I wish they'd figure out a way to get Andujar back.

                            And, just this once, even though I think he's a lying, cheating weasel, I hope the crowd doesn't boo Big Mac. This is a day to celebrate past teams and players, and he did provide some big memories.
