Public Viewing Today, Private Ceremony Friday
Cardinal Nation – and all of baseball – bids farewell to Stan Musial today with a public viewing at the Cathedral Basilica in midtown St. Louis. The Midwest was very fortunate to have this native Pennsylvanian call St. Louis home, after playing 22 seasons with his one and only team. There’s a movement in Congress, supported by Senator McCaskill, to name the new bridge being constructed over the Mississippi River in his honor – the Stan Musial Bridge – or as it’s already been nicknamed – the Stan Span. A fitting tribute to the passing of a pillar of our community.
Stan will always remind us of all that once was good and that could be again. Thank you for all the memories, Stan!
