Stan Musial Has Alzheimer’s

UNDATED (KMOX) – A book due out May 10th says a Cardinals baseball icon is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease.

George Vecsey of the New York Times writes 90-year-old Stan Musial developed symptoms of the disease in his mid 80’s.

Advance copies of Vecsey’s book “Stan Musial, An American Life” indicate the Baseball Hall of Famer’s family has helped Musial keep as active as possible, to reinforce his contact with the world.

Musial’s most-recent public appearance was at the Cardinals season opener in late March. 

He received a Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama earlier this year.
