The grounds crew at Busch Stadium had taken to carving the symbol along with either an Ichthys or a “6″ into the mound before home games. According to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the “6″ was to honor the late Cardinals great Stan Musial after his death in January, but one fan who objected to the display said it looked like the Christian fish symbol.

Mozeliak Post-Dispatch he had been unaware of the marks until they were featured in news reports.

“Once we learned of it, I did contact the grounds crew and just asked that they don’t,” Mozeliak told the Post-Dispatch.

“It’s just not club policy to be putting religious symbols on the playing field or throughout the ballpark. I didn’t ask for the reason behind it. I just asked for it to stop,” he said.
