RIP Sir.....A great player and fine man.

One of my prized possessions is a baseball he autographed for me in
1969 at a Cub/Cardnial caravan in Peoria, IL when I was 10.

Sad news.
Opening day at Busch stadium will never be the same without him
riding around waving to the fans.
Check out his website. Cool video.

A class act, by all accounts, and one hell of a ballplayer.

RIP.

Xerxes: There will be no glory in your sacrifice. I will erase even the memory of Sparta from the histories! Every piece of Greek parchment shall be burned. Every Greek historian, and every scribe shall have their eyes pulled out, and their tongues cut from their mouths. Why, uttering the very name of Sparta, or Leonidas, will be punishable by death! The world will never know you existed at all!

King Leonidas: The world will know that free men stood against a tyrant, that few stood against many, and before this battle was over, even a god-king can bleed.

In the Spring 1989, I was in St. Louis on business and attended a Cardinals baseball game. Outside Busch Stadium, a big limo pulls up and Stan Musial gets out with press cameras flashing. Not many people around, so I bought a baseball with the Cardinals logo at one of those trailers that sells pennants, baseballs, etc and had him sign the baseball for my oldest son who was one month old at the time. Neat memory.

R.I.P. Stan the Man. As said before, opening day at Bush Stadium will never again be the same. The Memorial to him on opening day this year will be a real tear jerker.

My family always went to one ballgame a year in Busch Stadium when I was growing up. One year we went out for supper before the game at his restaurant. He happened to stop by and was giving autographs and shaking hands with all of the diners.

It is amazing how things that don't seem that important at the time become more so later in life. I didn't realize who he was but my dad did, just like everybody else he stopped by our table asked about the food shook hands signed a picture and moved on. I know there were other people there that he did that for but for those 2 or so minutes he made us feel like we were the only family in there.

Stan Musial was baseball to me as a kid. I have his '58 All Star BB card. Sad Day. Got to see him play several times.

The average response time for a 911 call is 23 minutes; the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.

I bought on of his autographed baseballs with certificate about 15 years ago. I still have it today. I wonder what its worth now?
