“Heroes get remembered, but legends never die. Follow your heart, kid, and you’ll never go wrong.”
— “The Sandlot” (1993)
A great American legend, and one of my heroes, was buried last week. But “Stan the Man” Musial was more than a hero, he was and remains a legend. And legends live on, influencing those who come behind them, inspiring new acts of courage and goodness.
Though dead, Stan Musial lives on.
