Bo Hart Joins Redbirds Radio Team


Redbirds’ fans are familiar with the name Bo Hart. His hard work, dedication, hustle and grit was recognized throughout the Cardinals’ organization, especially in Memphis.

Hart enters his first season on the Redbirds’ broadcast team. A native of Creswell, Ore., he graduated from Soquel (Calif.) High School in 1995 with whom he captained his baseball team and also lettered in basketball. A Gonzaga University alum, he made his debut with the Cardinals on June 19, 2003, and had one of the best debut months in Major League Baseball history hitting .460. With the Cardinals he played in 88 games from 2003-04 hitting .272 with four home runs, five triples, 13 doubles and 30 RBI.

Hart had two stints with Memphis from 2005-06, in 2005 he hit .269 with nine home runs, 33 doubles, 47 RBI and 11 steals in 133 games. He met his wife, Lydia, while with the Redbirds when she performed a pre-game National Anthem. He would go on to propose to her in the dugout during a post-game fireworks show at AutoZone Park in 2005.

His baseball career stems from 1999-2008 and also includes stops with the Rockies, Cubs and Orioles organizations.

You can catch Hart on this week’s segment of Hot Stove, hosted by Redbirds radio broadcaster Steve Selby, tonight from 6-7 p.m. (CT) on WHBQ: Sports 56.
