VIDEO: Bob Costas speaks at Stan Musial's funeral

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

The funeral for Hall of Famer Stan Musial was Saturday in St. Louis, with Bob Costas -- who began his professional broadcasting career at KMOX in St. Louis -- one of those offering up some memories of Stan The Man.

Here's the video footage, via MLB.com -- it's well worth the watch, especially for the story of Musial approaching the likes of Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Ernie Banks to play cards in a 1950s All-Star Game. There's a good Mickey Mantle story in there, too. Just watch it.
