Stan_Musial_Day_05182008_croppedit’s with a heavy heart we say goodbye to Stan The Man, the consumate professional baseball player from the Golden Era. He was the first player to make $100,000 but he also returned part of the money one year when he didn’t feel his performance lived up to his pay. How many players today would do that? Musial was a gentleman who played for the same Saint Louis Cardinals his entire 22-year career! He made the Hall way back in 1969 hi his first voting  and a statue of him can be seen in front of the Cardinals ball park. http://oldiescountry.com/STAN-THE-MAN
