    I'm from Florida, but my Mom and her family is from St. Louis, so I was raised a Cardinal fan. Stan has been my idol since I was a kid. My Dad took me to see him play in the summer of 1961 at old Sportsman's Park. It is something I will never forget. He didn't get a hit the night I saw him, but that didn't matter. Just being there and seeing him play was the thrill of a lifetime. I can still remember that night as if it was yesterday; Ken Boyer homered, Curt Flood made a great catch in center, Julian Javier stole home, but seeing Musial topped all of it. Fifty years after his retirement he is still second all-time in total bases. RIP Stan.
