ST. LOUIS, June 19, 2002 -- The family of the late Jack Buck and the St. Louis Cardinals announced today that a public viewing of Mr. Buck's casket will take place at Busch Stadium, beginning at 7 a.m., on Thursday, June 20, followed by a public memorial service scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m.

The start time for Thursday's scheduled game against the Anaheim Angels has been pushed back to approximately 3:10 p.m.

The public is welcome to attend both the viewing and memorial service. Fans wishing to view the casket must enter Busch Stadium thru the wagon gate located off of Spruce St. and they will be able to file past until 11:30 a.m., at which time the field area will be cleared to allow time for the memorial service.
