Jack Clark - know as "Jack the Ripper" played for the St. Louis Cardinals - 1985-1987.


He has his best season as a Cardinal in 1987 - hitting 287 w/35 home runs, 106 RBIs and led the league in on-base percentage (.459) and slugging percentage (.597).


Clark again led the Cardinals to the World Series that year, although an ankle injury limited him to one at-bat in the postseason.


He is second all-time with 18 extra-inning home runs.


When asked what he would change in his life, Clark smiled and said, "Nothing. Everything couldn't be better."
