ST. LOUIS- The St. Louis Cardinals are one of the best teams in baseball when it comes to honoring its history.

But the club is admitting it made a mistake with the plaque honoring Cardinals Hall of Famer Ted Simmons. The Brewers were an American League club at the time Simmons played in Milwaukee.

A team spokesperson told FOX2 Wednesday, “We are aware of the error on the Simmons plaque and will be replacing it in the coming weeks.”
