Rogers Hornsby's home is on Maple Avenue in St. Louis, Missouri. In early 1925 the St. Louis Cardinal infielder bought this entire apartment complex, which served as home for him and his wife Jeannette. In early 1924 the couple had purchased an estate on the outskirts of St. Louis, but after a year of living there they grew tired of the upkeep and moved back into the city, to this location. They lived in one of the four apartments and rented out the other three. It was while living here that Hornsby managed the Cardinals to a World Series victory over the New York Yankees in 1926. They stayed here until early 1927, when Rogers was traded to the New York Giants, and he sold the property. Jeannette and their son, Billy, took up residence at the Forest Park Hotel, while Rogers was on the road.
