Brock starred in the outfield for the St. Louis Cardinals from 1964 to 1979, where he won two World Series, in 1964 and 1967, and also made six All-Star teams. After collecting 3,023 career hits, leading the National League in stolen bases eight times and retiring with all-time marks in career steals (938) and steals in a single season (118), he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame on the first ballot in 1985. He is now second all-time on those stolen base leaderboards to only fellow Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson.
Brock continued his success in the business world following his retirement as both a florist and as the inventor of the “Brockabrella.” He is also an ordained minister. A longtime advocate of Diabetes awareness and research due to a diagnosis of his own, in 2015 Brock’s left leg was amputated below the knee due to an infection stemming from Diabetes.
