Baseball is a sport that honors its history and tradition. Through touching tributes, yearly celebrations and other noted events, baseball honors its own heroes in unique ways.

On Jan. 19, legendary slugger Stan Musial passed away. Musial was highly regarded as one of the greatest players the game has ever known. Musial spent his entire 22-year with the St. Louis Cardinals, winning three MVP Awards and seven batting titles along the way.

On Sunday night, the St. Louis Blues of the NHL honored Musial in their own special way. Every single player donned jerseys with Musial's name and No. 6 for the pregame warm-ups prior to their contest with the Minnesota Wild.

Ironically, the first goal of the game was scored by Blues defenseman Wade Redden, who happens to wear No. 6.

In addition, the pregame jerseys worn by the players were autographed by the players themselves and auctioned off during the game. Proceeds collected went directly to Cardinals Care, the official charity organization of the Cardinals.

Many other stirring tributes have occurred in baseball throughout history, honoring the game's greatest players and fallen heroes.

Here are nine such tributes.
