Re: Here and Now: Stan Musial's Final Time At The Plate
The Cardinals are having their annual fan fest (Winter Warmup) this weekend so I'm downtown. I went down to the Musial statue last night for a couple of hours. There was a make shift memorial already popping up at that hour, that has grown today. I was lucky enough to meet him at the winter warmup about 12 years ago and shook his hand. He was so unbelievably nice and one of the truly great things about baseball. He will be missed.
