That is way cool!
I was just happy to be at Bush when he made an appearance at games.
My great grandfather met him after a game. My great grandfather talked to him and Stan invited him to a one day camp he and the Cardinals were putting the next day. My great grandfather talked my great- great grandfather into staying overnight. The next day Stan the man greeted my great grandfather by his name. Stan the man remembering my great grandfather's name was the best memory of my great grandfather's childhood. He was and always will be a big deal.
