ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Bob Costas unveiled the Stan "the Man" Musial statue at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center Friday.
The statue is part of the 2013 Homers for Health home run pledge program, which is sponsored by Peabody Energy and benefits the hospital. It's led by Matt Holliday, David Freese, and Allen Craig, and asks fans to make pledges for home runs during regular season games. The pledges can be as little as $0.25.
Players honored Stan Musial this year with the special Stan "the Man" memorial pledge of $6 per home run. Those who pledged that amount or more are on the statue, overlaid in front of pictures from Musial's life.
The statue was fully funded by Richard Winter, president of Garden View Care Centers.
