Keith Hernandez was a five-time All-Star who shared the 1979 NL MVP award, and won two World Series titles, one each with the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets. A terrific defensive first baseman, Keith won 11 Gold Gloves and established himself as one of the best to ever play the position. Currently, he serves as a broadcaster for the Mets on SNY.
This is one of my favorite people to visit with in life. I find Keith to be very thoughtful, engaging, funny, and opinionated. When I sat down with Keith in his home in Florida, we went on his back porch and just started to talk about what the Cardinals had meant to him as a player and what they mean to him now that he’s retired. Yes, his now famous cat, “Hadji,” made its way around our microphones during the podcast. From the Cardinals, to Stan the Man, the Bill Buckner play in 1986, his new book, to his appearance on Seinfeld, it’s all covered in this podcast with Keith Hernandez. Enjoy.
