St. Louis — St. Louis-- --There's a certain way die-hard fans measure the passage of time, borrowing baseball's timeline to mark those seminal life moments. Andrew Woodrow Lingle, whom everyone called just Woody, was no different.

He was born on the second-to-last day of the 1941 season. The next year, the Cardinals won 106 games, still a franchise record, and went on to beat the Yankees in the World Series, losing the first game and then winning four straight.
