Enter "Flat Stan the Man".
In order to gain some attention for the baseball legend, Hall of Famer and all around good guy, St. Louis Post-Dispatch cartoonist Dan Martin has designed a Flat Stanley-like image of the iconic slugger (you can download that sucker HERE) and the Cardinals are looking for your help.
Here is their plan:
Show your support for the St. Louis Cardinals effort to convince President Obama to award Stan Musial the Presidential Medal of Freedom by taking part in our Flat Stan the Man Project, in cooperation with Dale Hubert's Flat Stanley Project.
Simply print and cut out your own Flat Stan the Man, take your photo with it, then post it on cardinals.com/stan.
According to a recent story in the Post Dispatch, the ballclub has already taken "dozens and dozens" of pictures of celebrities and athletes (included the one with Albert Pujols above) with "Flat Stan the Man".
Should this all work, Musial won't be the first baseball player to be bestowed with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
