This week in the Ameren Illinois Inside Pitch, former Cardinals pitcher Kyle McClellan talks to Hall of Fame shortstop, Ozzie Smith.

The Wizards remembers the old scorching hot days with Astroturf at Busch Stadium II. He and the other fielders had a process to keep cool though. It involved leaves of aluminum foil, cabbage, buckets of ice and ammonia water.

He says guys like McClellan and the players now usually don’t realize how different the jerseys were in the 80s that Smith and others wore.
