About

This statue features Jack Buck in his favorite spot… behind the microphone. “The Voice of the Cardinals” broadcasted more than 6,500 games. He was a member of 11 Halls of Fame, including baseball, football, and radio. One of the all-time greats, he was St. Louis’ top Master of Ceremonies and was known for his great sense of humor and charitable work. “The Voice of Summer,” Jack was the ticket to the game for those who could not be at Busch Stadium. His memorable catchphrase will not be forgotten: “Go crazy, folks! That’s a winner!”
