Stan Musial, Dead at 92

In MemoriumStan Musial was 92. He was one of baseball's greatest hitters and a Hall of Famer with the St. Louis Cardinals for more than two decades.

He won seven National League batting titles, was a three-time MVP and helped the Cardinals capture three World Series championships in the 1940s.

My very favourite Stan "The Man" factoid is that he finished his career with 3,630 hits: 1,815 at home and 1,815 on the road.

Another great stat for Stan the Man:
In 1948, Musial hit .376/.450/.702. Even through the Steroid Era, his 429 total bases remains the highest total of the last 80 years.

P.S. It was a 154 game schedule then, which only amplifies the stat.
