A memorable person of my childhood memories has passed away.

I remember going to the St. Louis Cardinals games with my mom's dad, Alphonse Bansbach, at the old stadium that was made of wood bleachers.
It was north of downtown, out near the Post Dispatch building.

Stan Musial

Gentlemanly Slugger

 and Cardinals

Stan the Man,

Dies at 92

Stan Musial, one of baseball’s greatest hitters and a revered figure in the storied history of the St. Louis Cardinals — the player they called Stan the Man — died Saturday. He was 92.
I remember him and have followed him through the years.
He will be missed by the St.Louis fans who remember him at 1st base.
Pure gentleman ball player.
Todays's millionaire players should take a lesson from his life and career.
See ya later "Stan the Man".
