Cards to honor '64 champs, Jeter on Monday

CINCINNATI -- More than a dozen members of the Cardinals' 1964 World Series championship club are expected to be present for a 50th anniversary celebration at Busch Stadium on Monday.

Fittingly, the Cardinals will be hosting the New York Yankees in an Interleague series next week, as it was the Yankees whom the Cardinals defeated in seven games to capture the franchise's seventh championship. That was the last time the two storied franchises met in a Fall Classic.

Monday's pregame ceremony will be streamed live on MLB.TV and will include a parade of the players around the warning track.

The Cardinals also have scheduled a gift presentation for Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter as part of the pregame festivities on Monday. Jeter, who has announced that he will retire at the end of the season, will be joined on the field by several Cardinals front office members, Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith, and Hall of Famer Red Schoendienst, whose No. 2 has been retired by the organization.
