ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Walk of Fame will unveil a sidewalk star for Cardinals broadcaster and former catcher Tim McCarver during an induction ceremony on Monday.

The ceremony, which is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. CT at 611 Delmar in The Loop, is free and open to the public. A longtime analyst for FOX's national baseball broadcasts, McCarver is in his first year calling games locally for the Cardinals. But he has been tied to the organization since the Cardinals signed him in 1959. McCarver went on to play 12 of his 21 Major League seasons in St. Louis and was a member of the Cardinals' 1964 and '67 World Series championship teams.

The St. Louis Walk of Fame, founded in 1988, has previously inducted 137 St. Louisans who have had a impact on the nation's cultural heritage. Other sports broadcasters who have previously been honored include Jack Buck, Harry Caray, Bob Costas and Joe Garagiola.

Several former Cardinals -- including Stan Musial, Lou Brock, Bob Gibson, Dizzy Dean and Ozzie Smith -- have previously been honored with sidewalk stars.
