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 even met him gathered at the Cathedral Basilica for a funeral Mass to remember the life of the one known simply as, 'The Man'. Musial, who died on Jan. 19 at the age of 92, spent his entire 22-year career with the Cardinals and maintained his residence in St. Louis following his playing days. Among those in attendance Saturday were the Cardinals six living Hall of Famers Ozzie Smith, Lou Brock, Bob Gibson, Whitey Herzog, Bruce Sutter and Musial's former roommate Red Schoendienst and five former and current Cardinals managers. Many others spoke before, during and after the service of what ...

Bob Costas' emotional eulogy for Musial

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. And it would have taken a lot more to keep them from seeing the man that most of them never even had the opportunity to meet. Musial, a Hall of Famer who spent his entire 22-year career with the Cardinals, died Saturday...

Thousands attend Musial visitation

Standing outside the Cathedral Basilica as thousands filed inside to pay their respects, Stan Musial's grandson was thankful. ''Just seeing all this,'' Brian Schwarze said, ''and I got to play catch with him.'' ''I mean, he was my grandfather.

To honor Stan Musial, Blues will don Musial #6 jerseys for warmups

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...

Blues honor Cardinals legend Stan Musial

ST. LOUIS The street hockey records from the 1930's in Denora, Pa., don't seem to exist but if they did, Stan Musial's name would probably have been somewhere on the list. A day after the baseball Hall of Famer was laid to rest after passing away a week earlier at the age of 92, the St. Louis Blues honored Musial by wearing jerseys with his name and No. 6 on the back...

St. Louis Blues Wear Stan Musial’s Name on Practice Jerseys in Honor of Cardinals Great (Photo)

Bob Costas gave a moving eulogy for Stan Musial (Video)

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...

Riding the Pine: Saying Goodbye to a Legend and the Connect to Albert Pujols

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...

That One Time When I Witnessed a Vintage Earl Weaver Eruption … and Met Stan “The Man”

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. I had seen Weaver manage and had met Musial and both events left an impression...

Stan Musial: Albert Pujols reflects on the passing of "The Man"

Up until he left the St. Louis Cardinals for the greener pastures of Southern California, many Cardinals' fans believed that former Cardinals' star first baseman Albert Pujols was the second coming of the late Stan Musial. Obviously, Pujols is thought of much differently than Stan Musial at this point, but there is no denying the amount of respect Pujols had for "...
