Slim Sallee became the first pitcher in Cardinal history to steal home on July 22, 1913 in a game against the Brooklyn Superbas. The Redbird lefty performed the feat in the game’s third inning, scoring the first run in St. Louis’s 3-1 victory over Brooklyn at Ebbets Field.

Later, he was on the staff of the World Champion Reds in 1919……..who won 8 more games in he regular season than the infamous ChiSox who were supposedly superior!
I do feel bad for the Reds of that season. They’ll never get their due, all thanks to the scandal.
