Discussion created by mckameym on Apr 10, 2013

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."
