Brock opens Cardinals museum exhibit in Little Rock

As was first posted here at The Cardinal Nation Blog back on February 5, the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum has partnered with the The William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum on a new exhibit called “Play Ball! The St. Louis Cardinals.”

The opening ceremony for the display of Cardinals artifacts was held Friday night at the Little Rock, Arkansas facility. Hall of Famer and Arkansas native Lou Brock presided. (Brock had been serving as a special assistant coach during the early days of 2012 spring training camp in Jupiter, Fla., from where the enclosed photo was taken last week.)

The following two-minute segment from KATV Channel 7 includes a quick view of some of the items being displayed as well as a clip of Brock’s remarks.

The Arkansas News also covered the Friday event and filed this article.

The Cardinals exhibit, which had been in the planning stages for over six months, runs through September 16 and is included with general admission to the library. I will be checking it out in June and will of course report back.

    Lou looks and sounds good.

    Presidential libraries want visiting exhibits. Baseball is more interesting than politics, so a baseball exhibit makes sense. With Lou Brock and the Deans natives of Arkansas, and with the Cards AA affiliate based in Little Rock for decades, such factors help explain an affinity between the Clinton Library and the Redbirds.
