Posted by cosmo on January 22, 2013

ST. LOUIS — A public visitation for Stan Musial has been scheduled from 2-8 p.m. CT on Thursday at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis.

Saturday, Musial will be remembered during a funeral mass at the same location.

That funeral service is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Saturday and will be followed by a funeral procession to Busch Stadium, where the family will place a wreath at the base of Musial’s statue. That statue has already become a memorial site where fans have placed various items as a way to honor Musial’s legacy as a Cardinal and member of the St. Louis community.

Musial, a 22-year player with the Cardinals, died Saturday at the age of 92.

Additional details about Saturday’s procession route will be released later this week.

The Musial family has asked that fans wishing to send flowers instead make a donation to the Covenant House or charity of choice in Musial’s name.
