(BaseballStL) -- Fans gathered outside Busch Stadium on Saturday night to pay tribute to the life of Cardinals legend Stan Musial.

A memorial site was established around Musial's statue near Gate 3, just hours after family members confirmed his passing. The memorial site will remain outside the stadium until an undetermined future date, according to a Cardinals release.

The team has also set up a website (www.cardinals.com/stan) to pay tribute to Musial, and allow fans to offer condolences to the family.

Funeral arrangements have not yet been finalized. In lieu of flowers, Musial's family asks that donations be made to Covenant House or a charity of the fan's choice in the name of Stan Musial.
