Stan “The Man” Musial–RIP

Legendary Cardinal Stan Musial, one of baseball’s great hitters, died today at age 92.

I’ve never been a Cards fan, but it’s hard not to have been a Musial fan. By all accounts a great guy, his stats are stellar: career batting average of .331; 3,63o hits; 475 home runs; 1951 RBIs; three time MVP.  No steroids–just pure talent. And he played for 22 years.

I remember him well, which tells you I’m an old Ricocheteer.
