Musial Item

From an old magazine: Larry King interviewed Stan Musial who displayed his modesty and his loyalty to his roots when he said, “Sometimes late at night, if I’m driving home from a function or something, I go by the [the Cardinals] stadium and look at that statue of me out front. I really get a kick out of it. Ya know, here’s a kid from Donora, Pa. with a statue of himself while he’s alive. Wow!”

I read somewhere else that Musial wasn’t too happy about the sculptor’s rendition of himself, but he was too nice to complain. I’ve seen it and I think the artist did a very poor job of capturing Stan’s appearance and his famous stance. Here’s a link to pictures of the statue. Let me know your thoughts, especially if you are, like me, a Donora native:
