RIP: Stan Musial

Stan Musial was one of the greatest players in the history of baseball. A gentleman both on the field and off, "Stan the Man" played his entire 22-year professional career with the St. Louis Cardinals. He had a lifetime .331 batting average, with 3630 base hits and 475 home runs, and held numerous records when he retired. Musial won seven league batting titles and three Most Valuable Player awards, and helped the Cardinals win three world championships. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969.
His star and plaque are accessible to everyone in perpetuity. We’ll miss you Stan. The way you led your life will influence sports fans and decent people forever.
Miscellaneous: Stan Musial was inducted into the St. Louis Walk of Fame on June 25, 1989 during the very first ceremony.
Mr. Musial gave the keynote address at the 1993 ceremony.
Until a few years ago, Mr. Musial would occasionally come to lunch at Blueberry Hill with his friend Dick Zitzmann. He always requested a table next to the window so he could watch the students and colorful characters walk by.
