Baseball legend Stan Musial had a request before he passed away recently: He wanted Bob Costas to speak at his funeral.
Costas honored that request at Musial's funeral on Saturday, giving an emotional farewell to the greatest St. Louis Cardinals player of all time.
"What was the hook with Stan Musial other than the distinctive stance and the role of one of baseball's best hitters?" Costas said. "It seems that all Stan had going for him was more than two decades of sustained excellence as a ballplayer and more than nine decades as a thoroughly decent human being.
