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.


US Army (Ret.)

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” — Jefferson`s “Commonplace Book,”

“Political tags – such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth – are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.” Robert A. Heinlein

“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.”- Heraclitus.

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.

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