Stan Musial was one of the greatest baseball hitters of all time. He played for the St. Louis Cardinals for twenty-four years and retired with a career batting average of .331 and 3,630 hits. Stan is known and respected for his many baseball records and honors. The records he set may be broken, but nobody will ever forget his devotion to baseball, his friendliness and endless good spirits, and his love of people. It is with good reason that Stan Musial is still known affectionately as Stan the Man.
