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.

this. when stan was at the game, the whole place would light up.

couple years ago the cardinals had "stan the man" day. i believe it was the last home game of the year against the brewers. after the 6th or 7th inning, they paused so they could let stan ride all around the whole field. eveyone stood and applauded the entire time. even the brewers pitchers came out of the bullpen and clapped. stan just reached out and shook their hands.

all class.
RIP
sec

The KC Star had a great article on Stan this AM. Some things I learned: He had an equal number of hits at home and on the road, 1815 each. He played over 1000 games at two different positions, outfield and first base. He never got kicked out of a game, ever. He was married to his high school sweetheart for 71 years before she passed last year. He was GM of the Cards for just one year, and that year they won the WS vs. Boston in 1967. He asked the Cards front office to give him a pay cut after the 1959 season because he hit under .300 (are you listening Luke Ho-Chaser?) He hit a single in his last AB. He played his whole career in St. Louis, and lived his remaining life -including over 40 years as a MLB HOFer- in St. Louis.

Epitome of class. They don't make em like this any more.

Cardinal nation was very lucky to have a man and player of his caliber spend his whole life associated with our team. Very lucky.
