When he retired he had 3,023 hits and held the record with 938 stolen bases from 1971 to 1991.
Brock was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985, during his first year of eligibility.
The St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Chicago Cubs 7-3 last (Sunday) night.
The Redbirds have taken 3 in a row from the Cubs at Wrigley Field and are just 1 and 1/2 games behind Chicago for first place in the National League Central.
The series finale takes place this afternoon.
The Kansas City Royals were swept by the Chicago White Sox with an 8-2 loss yesterday.
