Stan, you are still The Man
In baseball today, a lifetime .250 hitter who can sock a few home runs 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. 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.
