Stan Musial was remembered during a funeral and memorial outside Busch Stadium on Saturday as a Hall of Famer and a St. Louis icon.
Musial, who died Jan. 19 at age 92, was a three-time N.L. MVP and seven-time batting champion.
Among those in attendance for the two-hour Mass at Cathedral Basilica were commissioner Bud Selig, former St. Louis star Albert Pujols and Hall of Famers Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, Ozzie Smith, Bruce Sutter, Whitey Herzog and Red Schoendienst. Tony La Russa, who became close with Musial during his 16 seasons managing the Cardinals, sat near the front.
After the service, the hearse and vans filled with the Cardinals' delegation drove to Busch Stadium, where Musial's family laid flowers at the base of one of his two statues -- the one that made the move across the street from the old Busch. A single Clydesdale walked slowly down the street.
Lindsey Vonn beat Tina Maze on the Slovenian's home snow and in her best discipline -- giant slalom -- in Maribor. Vonn finished two runs in 2 minutes, 22.2 seconds -- 0.08 seconds ahead of Maze. With her 59th World Cup win, the American is three away from tying Annemarie Moser Proell's record on the women's side.
