Rolen selected as Cardinals' HOF inducteeApril 30, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
Scott Rolen has received plenty of accolades since retiring from Major League Baseball and this past week he notched another major accomplishment — induction into the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame.
The Jasper native and Wildcat alum will be joined by Jason Isringhausen and Mort Cooper as members of the Cardinals’ 2019 Hall of Fame Class. St. Louis will formally induct the three and present them with their ceremonial red jackets during an Aug. 24 ceremony on Fox Sports Midwest Live in Ballpark Village in St. Louis.
After starting his MLB career with the Philadelphia Phillies, Rolen joined the Cardinals via trade in 2002 and played with St. Louis through the 2007 season.
During his time with the Cards, he won four Gold Glove Awards, a Silver Slugger Award and was also named to four All-Star teams.
Rolen was a key contributor in helping the Cardinals reach the 2004 World Series with a two-run homer off of Roger Clemens in Game 7 of the NLCS against the Houston Astros.
During the Cards’ World Series run in 2006, Rolen hit .421 as St. Louis defeated the Detroit Tigers to capture the team’s 10th World Series championship crown.
Currently, Rolen works on the Indiana University baseball staff as the director of player development.
