Will Clark

On July 31, 2000, Will Clark was traded by the Baltimore Orioles with cash to the St. Louis Cardinals for Jose Leon. [ [http://www.baseball-reference.com/c/clarkwi02.shtml Will Clark page at Baseball Reference] ] Clark was acquired in part to play in place of the injured Mark McGwire. A rejuvenated Clark (.964 OPS) helped the Cardinals reach the playoffs, (which included hitting a home run in each of his first four games with his new club), and the team swept the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS. In the NLCS the Cardinals faced the New York Mets, who would go on to win the pennant, and lost in five games. Clark performed better in these playoffs (.345 BA) than in recent years. After announcing that his retirement would come when the Cardinals' playoff run ended, Clark went 1 for 3 in his final game on October 16, by|2000.
