Nationally renowned sports artist Amadee Wohlschlaeger of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in St. Louis, Missouri, conceptualized and designed "The Boy and The Man" in the form of a drawing in 1963 that was unveiled to the public in the August 18th edition of the Post-Dispatch.

As part of the many honors and gifts presented to Mr. Musial upon his retirement, he was presented with a large, framed lithograph of Amadee's "The Boy and The Man" by Anheuser-Busch, Inc., which is displayed inside the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

Missouri Sports Hall of Fame President and Executive Director Jerald L. Andrews proposed that "The Boy and The Man" statue be on permanent display at the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame.

We are grateful for the many sponsors who have made this statue possible.

Sculptor Harry Weber was chosen to develop the statue. Mr. Weber has constructed the statues of the Cardinals Hall of Famers at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri.

"The Boy and The Man" will serve as the cornerstone attraction on the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame's Legends Walkway and is officially dedicated for the enjoyment of all who visit the museum from this day forward as a way to recognize and honor the career and life of Stan "The Man" Musial, who epitomized the true meaning of what it takes to be called a "Legend" of Missouri sports.
