The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge is scheduled to open early next month.

The new bridge will carry Interstate 70 over the Mississippi River. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the four-lane, cable-stayed bridge and associated highway projects are being funded with a combination of Missouri, Illinois and federal money.

Cardinals fans know that there was only one "Stan The Man" Musial. But, an opportunity to get close to living like the legendary baseball player has come on the market.

The Ladue home of Stan Musial is up for sale, Realtor.com says. Musial died in January and his wife, Lil, died in May 2012

At the first major league baseball game I ever saw, as a Cub Scout in old Sportsmans Park in north St. Louis, Stan Musial got his 2500th hit, a home run.  I became a Cardinals fan and a Stan Musial fan that day.
