Chris Von der Ahe knew nothing about baseball when he founded the franchise St. Louis Cardinals. Yet the German-born beer garden proprietor became one of the most important figures in the game's history. Although he only picked up the team to sell more beer, he helped gather a group of ragtag professional clubs together to create a maverick new league that would fight the National League.
