Berkman spent 15 years in the major leagues including two with the St. Louis Cardinals (2011-12) where he earned his sixth and final All-Star bid, NL Comeback Player of the Year, and helped the team to their 11th championship thanks in large part to a pivotal extra innings performance in the legendary Game 6. He also played for the Houston Astros, New York Yankees, and Texas Rangers.
