What a great use of one our finest facilities..the Ozzie Smith Sports Complex...54 teams came toRead More O'Fallon for this great event, bringing 54 teams of Mom's and Dad's and Brothers and Sisters and Grandparents...WOW...Great for O'Fallon and the businesses of O'Fallon too!

My children played soccer - and loved it! My granddaughters play soccer - and love it! St. LouisRead More continually calls itself one of the "Soccer Beds" of the country. Sadly, the long term support for professional soccer has a tough track record in this market. Hopefully, the young soccer players will encourage their parents to take them to the games at the Arena. Wishing Daryl Doran the best...Hope that the owners are ready to open their pockets to success!

Keeping the River City Rascals at our T R Hughes Ballpark is an important decision for our city...WeRead More will maintain the ball park which is an important asset to our city, the Rascal's will be much more agressive in promotion and marketing and they will continue to win, because they are winners...The key now is to increase attendance by O'Fallon residents at the game...and I believe that will happen! Giving up on the ball park and walking away is not the answer and the working relationship between the City of O'Fallon and the River City Rascals will reap the rewards of working together and hanging in there!
What a joke full of Corporate Greed, while we (O' Fallon) pay for the Real Estate Tax Bill of theRead More Corn-Crib" Stadium in Normal, Illinois for owner Steve Malliet as the City Council Members and the Mayor get a Free Suite, Free Tickets, Free Food, Free beer and Free giveaways for giving their buddy Steve Malliet a 75-percent reduction in rent when it cost the City $700,000 in mortgage, repairs, paint, water and sewer to keep the door open while their are more players and staff than their are fans. Unbelievable!!!! Steve Malliet pays $50,000 Annually! Only in America!

Can't see a big infusion of public money happening, but it would be great if they moved to the oldRead More Fenton plant. Rockwood school district could sure use the money.

Why is this thread so full of whiners and miscreants who lack any knowledge of the NFL and how itRead More does business, stadium issues, or revenue generated by a top-of-the-line NFL stadium surrounded by hotels and restaurants? Do your dogs pout when you call them?

I had the TRUE PLEASURE of meeting Stan twice, of which I will never forget.I had the opportunityRead More to watch him get off a plane in Detroit from STL, which I was waiting for to return to STL, and be swarmed by these young boys looking for pats on the back and/or autogragths and him smiling and enjoying every second of it. He stayed until the last child left. What a gentleman!!!! I have many other great stories to tell about Stan...There will never be another so Great!! Go in Peace Stan and God bless you.

I was with a friend who knew him at a banquet once. The guy with me says, "So, Stan, I alwaysRead More wanted to ask you, when you have people meet you at Busch Stadium, do you tell them to meet you at your statue like all the rest of us?" I don't think Stan knew of that tradition and he found it very amusing.

Stan was my boyhood hero since about the mid 1950's. He was so highly respected as a person that IRead More tried to pattern my life after him, and I think I became a better person for having had him as someone I idolized and wanted to be like. He and my father and mother were all born in the same year (1920) and they were all heroes to me. I am feeling very sad this morning.

Stan Musial represents all that should be in the st louis cardinals world of sports. Honor ,Read More integrity and a humanitarian. He will be mourned , revered and treasured in our hearts for all time. Michael N Quinn

Stan the Man was a great American, a hero and an icon that parents should focus their children'sRead More attention on instead of those sports players that need to take drugs to make themselves seem important. Today, there are very few sports players that could even halfway measure up to people like Stan, he was a real hero.

When Stan turned 65, I produced a series of TV spots with him for Blue Cross Blue Shield. I pickedRead More him up at his house to head to the recording studio. Stan asked how many people would be involved at the studio. I told him about 30. He went back in the house and came out carrying a large leather suitcase. The TV shoot took three days. As we wrapped up, Stan ask everyone to gather round the table he was seated at. For the next hour and a half, Stan invited each person there to sit with him for a few minutes. He signed balls made out to the person and even signed additional ball for their kids if they ask. He also took plenty of time for photos. Stan was not only one of the all time great baseball players, but he was also one of the all time great ambassadors for the game. God bless Stan and his family.

When my husband was around ten years old, he was going to the Cardinal game with his Dad and Uncle.Read More They were running late and walking briskly along Grand Avenue. My husband, Harry, in his ball uniform, baseball glove on his hand and listening to the game on his transistor radio all of a sudden heard that Stan the Man had just hit, what looked likely to be, an out of the ballpark homer. Harry ran out on to Grand Avenue and caught that ball - Amazing! He then was able to go up to the announcer's box with Mr. Buck and all the regulars. He actually was able to draw the men beers (you could do that back then) and Stan signed his ball. What a treasured possession!

I am a former TWA flight attendant and was fortunate enough to have STAN THE MAN on a short flightRead More one day. He came prepared to sign autographs for anyone who wanted one....always accomodating. As a crew menber, I hesitated to invade his privacy but I just couldn't help myself on this occasion so I produced my son, Dan's, little league card. Without skipping a beat, Stan wrote "To Dan the Man from Stan the Man!"My son is now 40 and has treasured that card for the last 31 years and I treasure the memory of meeting such a class act. Those were the good old days!!!!
