First Pitch Notes Crusader Alumni

The St. Louis Cardinals invited Ted Savage back on May 1, 2022, for Lutheran Schools Day at the Ballpark to throw out the first pitch. Ted played for the Cardinals in the 70’s. After Savage’s baseball career ended, he earned a Ph.D. from SLU. After nine years as athletic director at Harris-Stowe University, he joined the Cardinals’ front office as Assistant Director of Community Relations. After 25 years in the Cardinals’ front office, Savage retired in 2012 as Director of Target Marketing. Joining Ted on the field were his wife, Phyllis, and daughters, Carla Savage Mazique (LN ’77) and Wanda Savage Moore (LN ‘78). Congratulations to the Savage family.
