Stan Musial to receive Presidential Medal of Freedom

Described as “baseball’s perfect warrior” and “perfect knight”, Stan Musial, turned 90 yesterday. Just a few days ago President Barack Obama  awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award.  Musial was my baseball hero as I was growing up in St. Louis. 

Here’s a little tribute to Stan The Man.

The award ceremony will take place early next year.  Stan is in frail health, so my concern is whether he’ll hang on long enough to actually receive the award.
