The team will wearing Stan Musial Tribute Jerseys on Sunday, June 16 for their evening home game against the Tulsa Drillers at Hammons Field.
The cream-colored jerseys are represented as exact replicas of St. Louis Cardinals uniforms from 1941. That summer, “The Man” played in Springfield before making his St. Louis debut in September.
On June 16, every Springfield Cardinal will not only don the tribute jerseys, but the entire team will also wear #6. As such, it will be the first time in 50 years that any Cardinal other than Musial himself has worn the retired number.
The tribute jerseys will also feature the Musial #6 patch that all Cardinals major and minor league players have been wearing on their left sleeves all season. The Springfield jerseys will also carry a Musial tribute jersey patch on the bottom right.
Best of all, fans will receive a chance to take one home, as the game-worn jerseys will be auctioned off throughout the June 16 game (and delivered afterward). Proceeds will go to the Humane Society of Southwest Missouri.
