ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOX)- He has a statue outside Busch Stadium, and now Baseball Hall of Famer Lou Brock has one outside a collegiate sports complex that bears his name.
Dignitaries gathered Monday for the dedication of the new Lou Brock statue at Lindenwood University, near the school’s baseball and softball diamonds.
The bronze sculpture is a slightly larger-than-life version of Brock stealing second base. It was crafted by St. Louis-based sculptor Harry Weber.
At the ceremony Brock said, “Today I feel like it is the last game of my career and the beginning of a new career. I am humble and grateful to Lindenwood University for this day.”
Some former and present-day Cardinals turned out for the dedication, including Albert Pujols.
Lou Brock played for the St. Louis Cardinals from 1964-1979. His Cardinals teams won three National League pennants and two World Series titles.
