As a fan favorite and the mold for what being a St. Louis Cardinal is, Willie McGee exemplified that and much more. Willie\'s devotion to the St. Louis Cardinals, to the city of St. Louis, and to the millions of Cardinals fans around the country demands our voices to be heard.
With the chances of Willie McGee making it into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY is now slim at best. But as Cardinal fans we know what the name Willie McGee means to the St. Louis Cardinals. He devoted his career to the Cardinals, and to the fans. It is now time for all of us to return that devotion by letting the Cardinals Organization know, even though Willie McGee may never reside in Cooperstown, NY... St. Louis, MO is his true home and is a Hall of Famer in every Cardinals Fan\'s eyes. In the world of Major League Baseball, unless you saw Willie McGee play or were graced to have him on your team, the common fan may see only sucessful statistics, but short of Cooperstown, NY statistics. St. Louis Cardinals fans were lucky enough to see much, much more than mere numbers. His character on and off the field should be looked upon as a true role model for today\'s youth. His number, deservingly belongs atop with the other Cardinal greats from the past and remembered not only for the player but also the person and what a St. Louis Cardinal should be.
Willie McGee spent 17 years changing every Cardinals fan\'s life forever. I am only asking please, for everyone to spend ONE to TWO minutes to change his life forever. And when his number becomes retired, you will know that YOU helped make it happen for him.
Pass this link to friends family, and everyone, anyone is free to post this petition link onto their sites, we need the Cardinals organization to say \"Wow, look at all the names.\" KEEP IT GOING!!! Thank you so much.
This has been a long time coming, and Willie McGee has been ignored long enough.
I am a lifelong Cardinals fan. I grew up watching the magnificent speed, the amazing plays made in the outfield, and the clutch hits to win the games by Willie McGee. Willie\'s performance as a Cardinal earned him an MVP, two Major League batting titles, four Gold Glove Awards, and held as one of the most beloved Cardinals to ever wear \"The Birds on the Bat.\" Please show your support by helping one cardinals fan voice turn into a Cardinals Nation shout to the St. Louis Cardinals Organization in retiring No. 51.
