Schankman’s St. Louis: Time to Gussy Up Gussie

    Just in time for Opening Day in St. Louis, local Sculptor Don Wiegand has restored the luster to his bronze bust of August A. Busch Jr., known better as Gussie. Wiegand sculpted the former team owner and beer baron more than 30 years ago, but every year on the day before the Home Opener, he and a team of volunteers, plus members of the Busch family, go to Busch Stadium to clean and polish the bust to keep it looking good.
