Pictures from the past in St. Louis sports…

Stan the Man…still the man!

Less than 10 days from the end of a 22 year career as a Redbird, Stan Musial singles against the great Sandy Koufax for one of only 4 Cardinal hits in a 4-0 loss to the Dodgers on September 17, 1963….remember that crucial series? The Dodgers came to St. Louis only a game ahead of the Cards with 10 to play, but swept all 3 games to all but insure the NL pennant…the previous night, Musial had hit the 475th and final home of his career against Johnny Podres, a shot to the right field pavilion roof…I was lucky enough to have been there!
