FOR 'THE MAN'
NBC’s Bob Costas delivered the emotional eulogy for Hall of Famer and St. Louis Cardinals legend Stan “The Man” Musial, who passed away at 92. Musial played for the Cardinals from 1941 to 1963. That’s right — he played for the same team for 22 years. In fact, Musial was so revered in St. Louis, that two statues of him stand outside Busch Stadium. He was considered...
ST. LOUIS Thousands of Cardinals fans braved frigid temperatures and long lines to pay their final respects to baseball legend Stan Musial Thursday afternoon.

''Just seeing all this,'' Brian Schwarze said, ''and I got to play catch with him.''

ST. LOUIS - A stranger approached Stan Musial's grandson Andrew Edmonds during the Hall of Famer's public viewing Thursday, with tears running down his face.
"Your grandpa's best attribute," the man said, "was that he made nobodies feel like somebodies."
The thought was shared by many Saturday as friends, family, former teammates and many who never...
In one of the classiest moves of the year, the St. Louis Blues will wear Musial #6 jerseys for warmups before their game against the Minnesota Wild to honor St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan “The Man” Musial. Musial died on January 19th, and was a three-time NL MVP and a seven-time batting champion. The Blues also took out a full-page ad in the St. Louis-Post Dispatch...

Stan Musial represented everything that I believed baseball was when I was a kid. He represented everything that is sorely missing from the game today. He played the game and loved the game for the sake and the beauty of the game. Above and beyond his tremendous accomplishments on the field, Musial was a rarity in life, a class act.
Musial died on January 19 at 92. I hadn’t given...

Stan Musial was an exceptional ballplayer and by many accounts exceptional human being. It was fitting that he was eulogized in an exceptional manner.
Veteran sportscaster and St. Louis native Bob Costas spoke for over 19 minutes at the funeral for Musial Saturday, a week after the Baseball Hall of Famer died at the age of 92. Costas says he spoke at the request of Musial, who asked...
It’s been a week since St. Louis (and the Baseball World) lost Stan “the Man” Musial. I told Russ when I found out that I wasn’t surprised (his health had been going south for a while) but I was in shock. A week later, and it’s still a little surreal.
Russ did a good job already looking at what Stan meant to baseball. I’m going to tell everyone what he meant to St...
I need to write something. What do I write?

What can you write about Stan Musial, who passed on the evening of January 19th at the age of 92? What can you say that hasn’t already been said about a man who stood head and shoulders above anyone else that...
For the first time in history, the Baseball Hall of Fame lost two of its members on the same day.
Last weekend, former Oriole manager Earl Weaver and former St. Louis Cardinal great Stan Musial both passed away, and memories of the two washed over those that had followed the careers of the pair of icons.
