They said it... Fun facts:
The Cardinals selected Cecil Cooper in the 1971 Rule 5 draft, but had to return him to Boston when he failed to make the team out of Spring Training.
Keith Hernandez was the 42nd-round pick in 1971, the 783rd player selected in the draft. The team's first-round choice that year also was a first baseman, Ed Kurpiel.
