Re: Congratulations Stan Musial
I think the amazing thing about Stan on the field is that he retired with something like 17 MLB records.
In that article, Bob Costas encapsulated it the best. Stan simply didn't have that one thing he could hang his hat on such being the last player to hit .400 like Ted Williams did or he didn't have the HR record when he retired. That's one of the reasons why he doesn't get the recognition of Mantle or DiMaggio. He was simply consistently brilliant.
Its also amazing that he got his nickname "The Man" from New York where most of the time that fan base was somewhat hostile to opposing players. He was just generally liked by almost everyone in baseball.
