If you are like me, in the last two weeks, you have read literally dozens of articles and seen considerable television coverage chronicling the career and life of the greatest St. Louis Cardinal of them all, Stan Musial.
I had been hesitant to add yet more to the mix. However, just when I wondered if anything new could be said, I came across an opportunity that I could never pass sharing – the subject speaking in his own words.
The following is a gem from St. Louis’ KSDK Channel 5. In one of his final interviews, “The Man” sat down with Rene Knott on the second day of the 2007 season. Musial spent 11 minutes talking about the fans, the game today and how he hoped to be remembered.
