  • 1941-63, Cardinals
  • 4th in Hits (3,630)

Stan “The Man” Musial was more than just a baseball player for the St. Louis Cardinals. He was the city of St. Louis and embodied everything the Cardinals stood for.

Musial was another ball player who served the United States of America during World War II. He missed the entire 1945 season because of it.

No matter though, as Musial could hit through an ice-storm if he had to.

His career seven NL Batting Titles ranks as one of the highest honors in MLB history. This includes a pretty sweet .376 average during the 1946 season.

Musial was also a three-time NL MVP and three-time World Champion.
