Success - request sent close

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. Oh yes. He hit safely one outta three ... for 22 years.

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