Hall of Fame manager Whitey Herzog had a stroke at a charity golf tournament Monday.

"Today we were informed that Hall of Fame Manager Whitey Herzog sustained a minor stroke during his charity golf tournament yesterday," the St. Louis Cardinals said in a statement. "Whitey has received treatment and is currently resting, and doing well.

"We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him at the ballpark soon."

Herzog, 87, managed the Cardinals from 1980 to 1990, winning the 1982 World Series. He also managed the Texas Rangers, California Angels and Kansas City Royals, compiling a 1,281-1,125 overall record.

Herzog led the Cardinals to three National League pennants and took the Royals to three division championships. The Veterans' Committee voted him to the Hall of Fame in 2009.

He also played eight seasons as an outfielder and first baseman from 1956 to 1963.
