ST. LOUIS — Hall of Famer Stan Musial died Saturday evening at his home in Ladue. He was 92.
A three-time National League MVP and seven-time NL batting champion, Musial played his entire 22-year major league career (1941-63) for the St. Louis Cardinals. Nicknamed “Stan the Man”, Musial was a 24-time All-Star selection and was a first ballot Hall of Fame selection in 1969.
“We have lost the most beloved member of the Cardinals family,” Cardinals chairman William DeWitt Jr. said in a statement. “Stan Musial was the greatest player in Cardinals history and one of the best players in the history of baseball. The entire Cardinals organization extends its sincere condolences to Stan’s family, including his children Richard, Gerry, Janet and Jean, as well as his eleven grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren.”
