    One of my father’s favorite players. Rest in peace, Mr. Musial. You really were The Man.

    Preacher Roe said the way to pitch to Stan Musial is to throw four wide ones and then try to pick him off at first base.

    The greatest baseball player – in every sense of the word – I ever saw play. Thanks for the memories Stan.

    really? the guy met and married his high school sweetheart, went straight into the bid leagues and played for the love the the game. married 72 years with many kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

    what a story. and the fact he was friends with the duke.

    would love to know what his salary was back then.

    reddecaesari, Didn’t mean to get you riled up. I guess why that seems so amazing to me is that Wayne was a football guy. Played with Ward Bond. You don’t often see them cross sports like that. Especially back then. No question Stan was a class act. You read about sports today and you need to just shake your head in discussed.

    One of the last of the genuine good guys. His statue stands tall outside of Busch Stadium. R.I.P. Stan THE MAN.

    Two in one day. :(

    Growing up, Stan the Man was a constant source of “educational inspiration” from my dad.

    Great memories!

    He was also very good friends with Jackie Robinson and helped guide him through the newly – albiet begrudingly – integrated MLB. Read what Jackie has to say about his old friend Stan. Says a hell of a lot about this man’s character.

    RIP Stan.

    True American icons are dying off. Today Stan the Man would be Stan the Person.
