  • Bill Endicott and Bobby Gene Smith, former Cardinals players, pass away

    Bill Endicott was, at the time of his passing, the third-oldest living former big leaguer and the oldest former Cardinal. Wally Westlake takes his latter title. He was also one of the few remaining 1946 Cardinals, a team that won the World Series, but now just Red Schoendienst remains from that club. Endicott died November 26 at 98.
