Cardinals fans remember Musial

 

St. Louis Cardinals fans remembered Stan Musial, gathering around the larger of the two statues honoring him outside Busch Stadium. The Hall of Famer died Saturday at 92. On Sunday, Stan the Man was the main topic at the Cardinals’ annual fan festival. Despite near-freezing temperatures, there was a game-day feel Sunday at the ballpark. Dozens of fans at a time congregated around Musial’s statue, often blocking a lane of traffic to get the perfect photo. The team was awaiting word from Musial’s family on arrangements for a formal tribute. Weather could preclude a home-plate ceremony and casket viewing for fans such as was done when broadcaster Jack Buck died in 2002.
