Herr Elected to Cardinals Hall of Fame

by Bryan Zarpentine

The Cardinals Legacy Foundation for Baseball would like to congratulate Tom Herr on being selected to the Cardinals Hall of Fame. After being nominated earlier this year among a half-dozen other St. Louis legends, Herr is one of three players who will be inducted into the Cardinals Hall of Fame in 2020. The former second baseman and longtime fan favorite will be joined in the class of 2020 by first baseman Bill White and pitcher John Tudor. A date for the induction ceremony is yet to announced.

“I was very honored to be on the ballot and then to get in was really Special,” said Herr, who felt “elation and gratitude” upon learning he had been voted into the Cardinals Hall of Fame.

Herr’s journey to St. Louis began after he went undrafted following his senior season of high school. He had offers on the table from five major league clubs and also considered attending to the University of Delaware as a multi-sport athlete. But his relationship with scout Tim Thompson pushed him to sign with the Cardinals and begin his pro baseball career.
