As a boy of ten, I saw Stan play his last game in Houston against the then Houston Colt 45's. Weren't even in the 'Dome yet; we could see it being built in the distance. All the National league teams had a "Stan Musial Day" in their city on the last day Stan would ever play there. They gave him all kinds of gifts, a Volkswagen bus being one of them! And all the Houston fans there gave him a mighty ovation. It was the only thing to do for such a great player. And, what was he doing before the game? On our way through the parking lot, we bumped into him; just out there mingling with the fans!
