Stan Still The Man

One outta three....for 22 years

In baseball today, a lifetime .250 hitter who can sock a few homeruns can hang around for years earning millions per. Batting .300 has become rare and sluggers strike out up to 200 times a season.

One great hitter never struck out more than 46 times in a season and that occurred as a 41 year old Methuselah. He went yard 475 times and wasn't even considered a slugger, just a pure, sweet hitter. Oh yes. He hit safely one outta three....for 22 years.

That was Stan Musial, lifetime Cardinal great who died January 19 at 92. Stan....you still The Man.
