Re: Congratulations Stan Musial
Nice article. Thanks for posting. The article mentioned how Musial was not voted onto the All Century Team by the fans, which was crazy. Musial wasn't colorful, he didn't feud with other players or sportswriters, he didn't marry a movie star, his cap didn't fly off as he ran the bases---he just showed up, played virtually every game, every season, hustled all the time, and hit .330 with power.
I once read an anecdote about John F. Kennedy meeting with Musial before a game in 1960 when JFK was running for president. Kennedy told Musial that he couldn't understand why people said Musial was too old to play baseball (Stan was 39) while Kennedy, age 43, was too young to be president. A year or two later Stan met Kennedy at another game and told him "we fooled them Mr. President."
