ST. LOUIS (BaseballStL) – The St. Louis Cardinals and its fans were blessed with an appearance from Stan ‘The Man’ Musial prior to Game 4 of the NLCS.

It was a special moment for the fans in attendance to see Mr. Musial, who has trimmed back his appearances in recent years.

“Normally when I'm doing my pre-game warmup I don't really pay attention to anything that's going on,” Game 4 starter Adam Wainwright said.  “But I stopped and made sure I clapped and acknowledged Stan The Man.  What a huge figure in this town and this city and for the sport of baseball.  And I have so much respect for what he did here.”

Mr. Musial posted a .331 batting average, hit 475 home runs and collected 3,630 hits in his 22-year career, all with the Cardinals.
