SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — The newest members of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame include men who helped lead the St. Louis Cardinals to championships in the 1960s.

The Hannibal Courier-Post reports that Roger Maris and Curt Flood were inducted Thursday in Springfield, along with scout Tom Greenwade. Another Cardinals star from the era, Mike Shannon, was honored as the 26th Missouri Sports Legend with a bust at the museum. Shannon has been a broadcaster for the team for more than four decades.

The ceremony also honored the 1964 and 1967 World Series champion Cardinals teams. Flood and Shannon were on both teams. Maris was traded from the New York Yankees to the Cardinals prior to the 1967 season.

All three also played on the 1968 team that lost the World Series to Detroit.
