Let's make June 6th Stan Musial day for Cardinals Nation

One of my United Cardinals Bloggers cohorts, Daniel Shoptaw of C70 at the Bat, came up with a great idea that I would like to share.

Make June 6th every year Stan Musial day.

In his article, Daniel outlined some ideas on how to honor Stan, including the following:

  • All Cardinals players would wear a retro jersey from Stan's career
  • The team would have some sort of Stan Musial related giveaway for the fans
  • A member of Stan's family would throw out the first pitch
  • A portion of the proceeds from the game should go to one of Stan's charities
  • Work with MLB schedule makers to ensure the Cardinals always play at home on this day
Its a great concept and one that I hope the Cardinals brass will implement.  However, it may take some encouraging from Cardinals Nation.  So, let's start a grassroots campaign to make this happen.

Write a letter to the Cardinals Executives at:  700 Clark Street, St. Louis, MO  63102 and ask them to make June 6th Stan Musial day.

What better way to honor "the Man".
