Isn't it wonderful that Stan Musial is still around to enjoy this. He is being driven on a victory lap around the field and the players are treating him with the reverence he so richly deserves.
Some of the great memories of my early youth center around the last two years of Stan Musial's career. I still remember how disappointed I was when the streaking Cardinals fell one game short of getting him into the World Series during his final year, 1963.
Barack Obama has just thrown the first pitch to Albert Pujols and is now shaking hands with the Cardinals' other living Hall of Famers (in addition to Musial) Bob Gibson, Red Schoendienst, Ozzie Smith, Lou Brock, and Bruce Sutter.
