ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The St. Louis Cardinals say Hall of Famer and former manager Whitey Herzog sustained a "minor stroke" during a charity golf tournament, Monday. 

Herzog and his family wanted to let everyone know he has received treatment and is currently resting, and doing well, stated the Cardinals press release. 

"Whitey is hoping for a quick recovery, and he and his family are very appreciative of the caring support that everyone has shown them," stated a tweet from the Cardinals.

The 87-year-old was an MLB manager for 18 seasons including 11 in St. Louis. He took the Cardinals to three World Series thanks in part to his well-known "Whitey Ball" style built on speed and defense. His 1982 team won a World Series and hit the fewest home runs in the Majors that year.
