(KTVI)-We all know Stan Musial was one of the greatest players in baseball history. But a new exhibit opening today at the Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum in Ballpark Village celebrates Musial`s remarkable life and contributions off the baseball diamond.

The exhibit is called 'Stan Musial: The Man Off the Field' and the artifacts truly remarkable.

Stan's family members and Cardinals officially cut the ribbon at 10:30am this morning.

There are all kinds of memorabilia from Stan`s life including his famous red blazer, his Presidential Medal of Freedom and a bat that he gave Pope John Paul II during his 1999 visit to St.  Louis. The items in the exhibit are a combination of what was in the Cardinals vault plus memorabilia on loan from the Musial family.

It will be open from 10am-6pm during the off-season and a little later during the season.

The Cardinals are opening the exhibit today because this would have been Stan`s 94th birthday.

Admission to the museum will be discounted to $6 for everyone for this entire weekend in honor of Stan the Man`s number 6.

The one of a kind exhibit will remain open until November of next year.
