He batted .331 lifetime, which is an amazing statistic. I saw him hit home runs in the old Sportsman's Park in St. Louis and then in Busch Stadium, which is now gone. Musial was the last of the old-time ball players who were identified with one team their entire career.
For years after baseball, his restaurant, Musial and Biggie's was the place to take a girl you wanted to impress.

And here's the KMOX story.
Thanks for all the great baseball, Stan.
