Sure, it’s a Monday — but there are only 6 days until the Cardinals begin the 2015 regular season against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
And, for all of us as Cardinals fans, 6 means only one person.
Stan Musial, baseball’s perfect warrior and baseball’s perfect knight.
We’ve written plenty about The Man here through the years, even a Cardinal Love Letter in honor of his 92nd birthday in November 2012. So, instead of more words to honor No. 6, just pictures instead. Six more, of course.

This photo and the one above are from Stan’s final game on Sept. 29, 1963.

Always a joy to see that smile.
And now just 6 more days!
