Pictures from the past in St. Louis sports…

The end of an era…Number 6 says goodby in style…

September 29th, 1963…Busch Stadium…retiring Cardinal’s great Stan Musial accepts congratulations from his wife Lil during pre-game ceremonies honoring the Cardinal legend…Musial, with his teammates lined up behind him and along the third base side of the field, had just been presented a neckerchief from the Boy Scouts of America. Soon he would speak to the crowd and offer thanks for 20 plus seasons at Grand and Dodier.     Then go out and get two basehits, drive in the Card’s first run…and leave a final game 3-2 winner…and THAT, he’s been for the community of St. Louis and baseball in general ever since!
