Ken Boyer is among 10 candidates for baseball's Hall of fame who will be on the Veterans Committee ballot next month. Boyer (14) was the Cardinals third baseman from 1955-65. He returned to manage the team from 1978-1980.
Boyer hit for the cycle twice, once on Sept. 14, 1961, and again on June 16, 1964.
He earned five Gold Glove awards for his fielding, and was a solid player at the plate, averaging 26 home runs and 98 RBI to go with a .304 batting average during the years 1958 to 1963. He was named the National League Most Valuable Player in 1964. That same year, in the World Series against the Yankees, Boyer's grand slam was the margin in Game 4 the Cardinals needed to obtain the game victory.
