Funeral Arrangements Set For Musial

(UPI/Bill Greenblatt)

Funeral arrangements are set for Cardinals great Stan Musial.

A public visitation will be held Thursday at the Cathedral Basilica in the Central West End from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. The funeral Mass will be Saturday at 11 a.m., also at the Basilica. New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan is expected to help officiate.

Following the Mass, the funeral procession will travel to Busch Stadium where the family will lay a wreath at the base of the Musial statue. Burial will be private.

Musial died Saturday at 92. He played his entire Major League career with the St. Louis Cardinals, winning three MVP awards and seven league batting titles. He was a perennial All-Star and first-ballot Hall-of-Famer, and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2011.
