St. Louis manager Mike Matheny, who has guided the Cardinals into the post-season in each of his four seasons at the helm, has clearly emerged as one of the game’s best leaders.
But equally impressive is his approach to coaching youth sports, which he did after retiring from his 13-year Major League career as a catcher and four-time Gold Glove winner.
