ST. LOUIS (AP) - Hundreds of people have gathered to say goodbye to Red Schoendienst. Among them are current and past St. Louis Cardinals players as well as fans.

The Hall of Fame second baseman’s public funeral was Friday at the Cathedral Basilica in St. Louis. He died last week at 95.

Current Cardinals Matt Carpenter, Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright were among those on hand as were former Cardinals Ted Simmons and Bruce Sutter.

Schoendienst spent most of his playing career in St. Louis and managed the team to the 1967 World Series championship and the 1968 National League pennant. All told, he spent more than 60 seasons in a Cardinals uniform as a player, coach and manager.
