One of baseball’s greatest players has passed away at age 92. Stan Musial’s resume was as impressive as anyone.
A hall of fame player, Musial won seven National League batting titles, three MVP awards and was part of three World Series championships for the Cardinals during the 1940s.
Musial passed away in his home. His son-in-law informed the Cardinals of his death.
“We have lost the most beloved member of the Cardinals family,” said William DeWitt Jr., Chairman of the St. Louis Cardinals. “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,” DeWitt said. “We join fans everywhere in mourning the loss of our dear friend and reflect on how fortunate we all are to have known ‘Stan the Man’.”
Musial was the second hall of famer to pass away on Saturday. Longtime Orioles manager Earl Weaver passed away in the early hours of the day.
