When my husband was around ten years old, he was going to the Cardinal game with his Dad and Uncle. 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!
