St. Louis (KSDK) -- Stan Musial's grandson said the entire family is excited to see the former St. Louis Cardinals slugger receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House on Tuesday.
Brian Musial Schwarze said his grandfather, Stan "The Man" Musial, is his best friend and they spend 10 hours per day together.
It wasn't until Schwarze was a teenager that he realized his grandfather was "The Man" and much more than an baseball player.
Schwarze said he is proud of his grandfather's accomplishments on the field, but also proud of his generosity for others off the field.
