Brian Walton's news and commentary on the St. Louis Cardinals (TM) and their minor league system

Recalling Stan Musial on Springfield television

Along with St. Louis Cardinals radio announcer John Rooney, I was honored to be one of the guests on KOLR-TV in Springfield, Missouri to discuss the legacy of Stan Musial. We were part of the 30-minute weekly sports show called “Ozarks Saturday/Sunday,” hosted by Nick Carboni.

“The Man” holds a special place in Springfield history, as he played in the outfield there during his rapid ascension to the major leagues in the summer of 1941.

Ironically, when the show aired in Springfield Sunday night, I was among the many enjoying Rooney as he expertly emceed the 55th annual Baseball Writers’ Award Dinner in St. Louis. For those interested, KMOX Radio has posted selected highlights of the evening’s proceedings.

Here is the audio of my spot, courtesy of Carboni and KOLR-TV.

    Looks like the Dodgers are going their own way for TV – in partnership with Time Warner Cable. link
