    This. I was too young to watch him play, but from everything I've read/heard/seen, he exuded class. I hate the Cardinals, but I wouldn't have a single bad thing to say about this stud of a HOF'er and man. RIP Stan.

    RIP Stan The Man. With all due respect to Mr. Pujols, nobody says "Cardinals baseball" more than Musial. Sad day for baseball fans.

    Very sad day for Baseball. Stan the Man was one of the all time greats. More than just a Hall of Famer. He was an elite among the elites.

    Stan 'The Man' Musial was indeed a class act. He got along with everyone including umpires. Never argued a call...never. And because of that I imagine the umps usually gave him the benefit of the doubt on close decisions.

    I grew up watching him and marvelled at the way he became a hitting machine at the plate. I tried to copy his batting stance...I'm sure I wasn't alone in that.

    The baseball world is much, much poorer this evening.

    RIP, Stan.

    My step-grandfather played with him a few years. Said he was the best player he ever had the chance to play with and was the toughest out he ever faced.

    It seems like he was the last of the bunch. I guess Willie Mays is still out there, but Musial was the last one who was completely before my time. That makes him the last legend for me.

    What a wonderful man. Baseball has lost an immortal. Sad day.

    RIP Mr. Musial. He seemed he like an incredible person, and was one of the greatest players ever.

    Hate to admit it but I did get to see him play for a few years although he was past his prime he could still hit. I remember the day he retired in 63 he went 2 for 3 and was taken out in the 5th inning after he singled.That was Petes rookie year and the Cards made a major run at the Dodgers winning 19 of 20 at one stretch and finished 2nd that year.We all know what they did in 64 after Stan was gone.
