There are no words to describe the rise to fame of Lou. Never once ever saw Lou not in the game 100%. It to me unfortunate if you are to young to have seen him play. I stood in line 3 hours to have him sign a ball for me, my prized possession to have something he held in his hand. He will always be in history as one of a KIND. Most sad to hear the news but know he is in heaven for a well earned rest. It is not a sin to steal a base.

My condolences to the Brock family. I remember as a kid in in elementary playing baseball myself watching you get on base, and the excitement of knowing what was about to occur a easy stolen base. Thank you and your lovely wife for sharing personal stories with me and the family when you traveled to Arkansas Years ago for your brother funeral. You were the best to ever wear a Cardinals uniform in my eyes.R.I.P Lou Brock

I was given, years ago a Chicago Cubs Rookie Picture of Lou Brock. For those that know me friends and family, I’m the biggest St Louis Cardinals fan, thus this Cub Rookie picture is the only one allowed. Several years ago I was aware of a Sports Hero Memorabilia and autograph session in my area of suburban Chicago and Lou Brook was listed as attending, so I got the time off of work, enveloped my rookie picture and headed to see if I could meet Lou. I stood in a line and was about 30 guys back when, over the intercom they announced that Mr. Brock due to his schedule would have to leave in 10 minutes. My heart sank. Then the guy in front of me saw Lou’s Rookie Pic and this guy says “we gotta get you up there” and he started yelling at everyone in front to let me thru and they did. Lou wanted to know how I got that picture and graciously signed it and made my day

Just wanted to take a min to express my deepest condolences to Jackie and the family. As it has been told over and over he was a very special person. I am so glad I was able to get to know Lou over my years in STL. He and Gibby taught so many of us how to be a Cardinal, and what a special organization and town St Louis is. For a person of his stature to take time to talk to us was very special. He never acted like a Hall of Famer, he was always just one of the guys. We will miss his smile and good nature. RIP Lou.

It was the summer of 1973, My husband and I moved to Olivette, Missouri. There we were getting settled in, kids in school, cub scouts, etc. It was an ideally quiet neighborhood. We were blessed. Our back yard adjoined a neighbors back yard which turned out being that of Mr Lou Brock and his family whose son was the same age as my younger son. These little guys quickly became buddies running in and out from one house to the other... and in no time at all, what one didn't think of the other did. Of coarse years went by quickly. We were blessed to be in the right place at the right time; Our condolences to the beloved Family of Mr Brock. Sincerely, Elizabeth & Robert Diamond

I was such a Lou Brock fan. He was one amazing man, fleet of foot with a savvy feel for what was to work.

I grew up with Lou Brock in Collinston, Louisiana. We both played baseball for our high school team, Union High School in Mer Rouge, Louisiana. I knew then that Lou had that special ability and "spark" because he could play any position on the team. I recall many occasions walking down gravel roads and Lou using a tree limb as a bat to hit gravel rocks with a smooth swing. He always made perfect contact with that tree limb! Our families attended church services on Sundays. Lou, at approximately 13 years old , organized a Gospel Group comprised of 13-14 year old boys who sang our hearts out at Salem Baptist Church #1 on Sunday mornings. I have wonderful memories of you Lou and will remember your winning smile always. My condolences to your wife Jackie and family. Until we meet again. Rest in Peace.

L.C. Brock was always humble with a big smile. Brock was in the 7th grade when I was in the 3rd grade at Collinston Elementary School in Lousiana. During recess and lunch we played long ball. Catch 3 rollers or a fly ball you get to bat. As a 3rd grader I camped out behind all the fielders whenever Brock came up and most often caught 3 uncontested rollers. When he became a major leaguer facing Galor Perry I asked him how he hit the spit ball. No problem just hit it on the dry side. My condolences to the family. L.C. Brock will live in my spirit until we meet again. Peace

I am a school teacher and high school coach in Indiana. As a youngster my dad took us to St.Louis to watch the Cardinals every year. We lived between Charleston and Casey, Illinois at that time. I fell in love with watching Lou Brock, #20. He had a major impact on me. We listened to KMOX and followed the Cardinals religiously. Lou has always been my favorite Cardinal. He changed baseball. Pitching was so good back then and Lou was a player that got on base and scored runs by stealing and manufacturing runs.
I will always remember his character. He seemed like a great teammate and always respected the game. This impact I watched from Brock I and have tried to emulate this as a teacher and coach. His baseball career changed my life and many others. I will continue to honor Lou by impacting as many young people that I can to be great. When Lou retired he still pulled for the Cardinals. I showed in class some clips of Lou Brock after his death. The students were amazed. Even in death Lou is making an impact on the next generation. I am so thankful I lived through his career.
To a young boy growing up you were the best!
All I can say is... Thanks Lou!!!
To the family of Lou Brock... I pray you can find comfort in how wonderful Lou was as a person and what a great family you are. Lou jr. your tribute to your dad was so special. Thanks for sharing that. It was so great to read those words. Thanks for sharing Lou with his fans!!!
God bless you all!!!

My sincere Condolences to you Jackie and your beautiful family. It just seems like yesterday we were celebrating Lou’s 70TH during Spring Training. His stories of him trying out for the Cardinals and the Cubs I’m sure many don’t know the story. Lou was a special man his faith to God. He of course was a great baseball player too.

I didn't fit any relationship category because fan or admirer are not listed. Lou Brock was a great baseball player and a good example for our youth. He gave so much enjoyment to baseball fans everywhere. May he Rest in Eternal Peace.

Posted by Suzie Tavano    September 09, 2020

I am a living example of the generosity and kindness of Lou Brock. In 1970 as a Rookie with the Cards, there were five members of the club who opened their arms to me. Lou was one of those men, who always took me out to dinner on the road, took the time to show me the "ropes" in being in the big leagues and always talked about his love for the game. Others were Bob Gibson, Dick Allen, Joe Torre and Steve Carlton. May Lou's soul forever rest in peace.

Posted by Bart Zeller - Scottsdale, AZ - friend   September 09, 2020

Thank you Lou Brock, one of my favorite ballplayers. You taught me how to take that first step in base-stealing. It really worked. Missed you since the day you retired.

Posted by Larry Wojcik - Harrison City, PA - student   September 09, 2020

Dear Fans of Lou Brock,

I really did not get into baseball till 1973, because between 1968 to 1973 my attention was in the direction of Southeast Asia. You have no idea what Boys of 8 go through when brothers leave for war, and you might see them again. It is called ignorance. When he returned, there was a New Homerun King, split divisions, playoffs, and a unheralded man, who already had two World Series Rings out of three trips, thanks in part to the Legendary Fireballer Bob Gibson. His stolen base record was the achievement everyone wanted to break and it took over 20 plus years to do it by another Hall of Famer Ricky Henderson of the Oakland A's. I only got to see his career for several years but Saint Louis Cardinal Baseball had a record holder and Hall of Famer. All you need do to see his record is do what I did, buy a Baseball Encyclopedia. Rest in Peace.

I'm 60 years old now, and have been a fan of Lou Brock ever since I was a little girl in the 60's. I remember lying awake in bed listening to my transistor radio when I was supposed to be asleep. I remember hearing when he brose the stolen base records and when he got his 3,000th hit. I was there and have pictures of Lou Brock Day at the stadium when he got his boat. I've always enjoyed the opening days when he would come out in his red jacket, and always admired his Christian testimony. I know all of us and Cardinal Nation mourn the passing of this great man. Lou!!!

Posted by Kim Cooper - Salem, MO   September 08, 2020

Lou was a superlative, record-setting, multitalented ballplayer. His hitting and base running, alone, literally changed the game. And by all accounts, he was a wonderful man.

We love you and will miss you, Lou. Your skills on the field, and classy presence and traits on and off said, will always be highly admired and appreciated.
