ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Andrew N. "Drew" Baur, a member of the St. Louis Cardinals' ownership group, has died. He was 66.
The team said he died suddenly Sunday morning. A cause of death was not given.
The local bank executive helped organize the original ownership group that bought the Cardinals from Anheuser-Busch in 1996. A lifelong Cardinals fan and native of St. Louis, Baur most recently served as chairman of Southwest Bank of St. Louis.
Cardinals Chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. says "Drew loved the Cardinals and was a great partner."
