FOX Sports Midwest provides the picture below of the crowd of Cardinals fans gathering in front of the Stan Musial statue outside Busch Stadium’s third base gate. It was taken around 10:30 p.m. local time.
And here’s a message on a ball, provided by B.J. Rains, that was left by a young fan at the statue’s base:
“Here stands baseball’s perfect warrior. Here stands baseball’s perfect knight,” reads the statue’s inscription.
