The St. Louis Cardinals 1963 season was the team's 82nd season in St. Louis, Missouri and its 72nd season in the National League. The Cardinals went 93-69 (.574) during the season, and finished 2nd in the National League, six games behind the eventual World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers. The season was Stan Musial's 22nd and final season with the team, and in MLB. He played his final game on September 29, a victory against the visiting Cincinnati Reds.

Offseason

Regular season

In a strange quirk, all four starting infielders in the 1963 All-Star Game were Cardinals: Ken Boyer (3b), Dick Groat (2b), and Bill White (1b) were elected. Julián Javier (2b) took over for the elected but injured Bill Mazeroski of Pittsburgh.[6]

Pitcher Bobby Shantz, first baseman Bill White, third baseman Ken Boyer, and outfielder Curt Flood won Gold Gloves this year.[7]
