Stan Musial is on the short list of the best players ever to wear a major league uniform, a Hall of Famer who was as quick with his bat as he was with a smile for the fans at Busch Stadium during the 22 seasons he wore a Cardinals uniform.
The Cardinals are leading a movement to have President Obama award Musial the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the highest civilian honor a president can bestow. He’s certainly a deserving recipient for his contributions to the country on and off the field. Click here for information on the"Stand for Stan" campaign.
