Funeral Arrangements Announced for Cardinals Legend Stan Musial
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A public visitation for baseball great Stan Musial will be Thursday at the Cathedral Basilica in St. Louis.

The St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer died Saturday at age 92.

The Cardinals announced Monday that the public visitation will be 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday.

A funeral Mass will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, also at Cathedral Basilica. New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan, St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson and Bishop Richard Stika will officiate.

Following the Mass, the funeral procession will travel to Busch Stadium where the family will lay a wreath at the base of the Musial statue. After that, a private burial is planned.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Covenant House or a charity of choice in Musial's name.
