Rip Stan "the man" Musial
Sad day here in cardinal nation.
Stan Musial, one of baseball's greatest hitters and a hall of Famer with the St. Louis Cardinals for more than two decades, died Saturday. He was 92.
Stan the Man won seven National League batting titles, was a three-time MVP and helped the Cardinals capture three World Series championships in the 1940s.
Musial's public appearances dwindled in recent years, though he took part in the pregame festivities at Busch during the 2011 postseason as the Cardinals won the World Series. And he was at the White House in February 2011 when President Barack Obama presented him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America's highest civilian honor for contributions to society.
WOW! Also saw earlier today where Earl Weaver also passed away. Cold day in the hot stove league.
I wonder if a bunch of umpires will go to his funeral and kick sand on his casket?
Salute and dis at the same time.
As you can see by my Avatar, me loves my Cardinals.... Stan the man was one awesome player and man....
My son plays college ball now and I would only hope for him to be the type of man Musial was..... AND my boys high school number: 6
