On April 8, the Western Illinois Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter got a visit from a Hall of Famer. Lou Brock talked about his faith at their annual banquet that was held at the Oakley-Lindsay Center in Quincy.
The event has previously attracted former St. Louis Cardinals stars like Lance Berkman and Mike Matheny. St. Louis area FCA director and Cardinals broadcaster Rick Horton helps line up the appearances.
Brock specifically talked about the role faith played in his baseball career and with how he handled his Type 2 diabetes diagnosis. It was a memorable evening and served as the largest fundraiser of the year for the chapter.
Brock had a 19-year major league career that he spent primarily with the Cardinals. He still ranks second in MLB history with 938 stolen bases after leading the National League in the category eight times.
Brock was a six-time All-Star who finished as the runner-up for the NL MVP in 1974. He won World Series titles with St. Louis in 1964 and 1967.
Brock also finished his career as a member of baseball's 3,000-hit club. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985 and also is in the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame.
