ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - There was a special honor Monday for a former Cardinals and Hall of Fame broadcaster. Tim McCarver will be inducted into the St. Louis Walk of Fame. McCarver's star can be found on Delmar Boulevard, across from the Moonrise Hotel.
The induction ceremony took place at 11:30 a.m. McCarver was on hand for the festivities.
Many people know him best for his years working baseball games with Joe Buck on FOX. But McCarver has quite a history in the St. Louis area. He debuted with the Cardinals back in 1959 at the age of seventeen. As a catcher, he became a mainstay with the great Cardinals teams of the 1960s. He was an All Star in 1966 and 67.
McCarver retired from playing baseball in 1980 and moved over to the broadcast booth. He worked for all four major networks and called the World Series 24 times between 1985 and 2013.
McCarver, 72, won MLB's Ford Frick award in 2012 and has been enshrined into the broadcaster's wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
