The wife of St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial has died at the age of 91.
The team said Lillian Musial passed away on Thursday.
Lillian Labash was one of eight children whose parents owned a grocery store in McKean, Pa. Lillian and Stan Musial were high school sweethearts who married in 1940.
Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. said in a statement that the organization has lost a member of its family and that Lil Musial was the love of Stan Musial's life.
Stan Musial, who is 91, has been in poor health the last few years.

In the second inning of Thursday’s St. Louis Cardinals game, the club had two stolen bases. The first bag wasn’t much of a surprise, as it was swiped by Tyler Greene. After all, the infielder led the club in 2011 with 11.

About four hours later, Beltran proved himself to be right. The veteran went 4-for-5,...

Right-hander Kyle Lohse failed to join Lance Lynn as St. Louis starters to open their seasons at 5-0.
Lohse was not quite his April self as he allowed five runs in five innings to the Houston Astros on Friday night. However, two of those runs were unearned, and perhaps just one of the five should have scored if the Cardinals' defense had performed better.
On the other hand...
ST. LOUIS Lance Lynn may not be Chris Carpenter, but he's pitching about as good as the former Cy Young winner ever has.
Lynn continued a remarkable start to the year Wednesday night, becoming the first National League pitcher to reach five wins with 6 23 strong innings in the Cardinals 12-3 romp of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Moved to the rotation because of a nerve injury to...
