Baseball fans across the country today are mourning the death of St. Louis Cardinal great Stan Musial. In light of his passing, it is only appropriate to celebrate his memory and accomplishments both on and off the field.
A statement from Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt, Jr.:
We have lost the most beloved member of the Cardinals family. Stan Musial was the greatest player in Cardinals history and one of the best players in the history of baseball. The entire Cardinals organization extends its sincere condolences to Stan's family, including his children Richard, Gerry, Janet and Jean, as well as his eleven grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren. We join fans everywhere in mourning the loss of our dear friend and reflect on how fortunate we all are to have known 'Stan the Man'.
