This photo of Augie Favazza says everything about the St. Louis Cardinals and their epic World Series championship.
He grew up in the same neighborhood as Yogi Berra and Joe Garagiola – The Hill. He was a graduate of Southwest High, and the University of Missouri (B.J., 1973), and went on to become sports editor of the Portland Press Herald.
Now he splits the year between Old Orchard Beach and St. Petersburg – and works as an accreditation consultant to cosmetology schools. But he still has family in St. Louis, and his heart still pumps Cardinal red.
