Man..............no offense..................

Take a look at this guys record, and you'll see why they called him The Man

Played over 1000 games in the outfiled and first base......

SEVEN batting titles, and won MVP 3 times, finish SECOND 4 times.

In '43, struck out 18 times, walked 72 times................

Missed Triple Crown when game he homered in was rained out in '48

Hit .330 at age 41 in 505 PA

............................holy..........................

Was at HOF inductions in 1999. One night, Musial showed up and played a few minutes of harmonica for all the assembled fans.

An excellent way to put it. I second the motion.
Sorry I forget who said it but one of the best pitchers of his era said "Yeah, I got a strategy for pitching to Stan. I throw him my best pitch and then go back up third." That about sums it up.
RIP
