Also see . . .  Jesse Haines on Wikipedia. Haines (1893-1978) spent most of his career with the Cardinals, and pitched on three World Championship teams. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1970 by the Veterans Committee, which was controversial because some of his former teammates served on the committee. Haines was elected to the Cardinals Hall of Fame in 2014. (Submitted on September 3, 2020, by Jason Voigt of Glen Carbon, Illinois.)
