Position: Outfield and First Base
Time with Cards: (1941-1944, 1946-1963)
Stan is indeed, the man. He is the best St. Louis Cardinal of all time. He tops an unbelievable cast of Red Birds with his all-around dominance.
Musial leads the Cardinals all-time list in ABs, runs, hits, doubles, triples, home runs, RBI and walks. He finished his career with a .331 batter average, 3,630 hits, 725 doubles, 475 home runs, 1,951 RBI and .559 slugging percentage. That, my good friends, is RIDICULOUS!
Stan Musial stands alone. His ability and determination towards the game were unmatchable. He did not just have a few great years, he dominated for three decades only missing time to fight in the war.
Stan-the-man is a 24-time All Star selection, 3-time NL MVP and 3-time World Series Champion. He also is a member of the All-Century Team.
Musial's number was retired by the Cardinals right after he retired from baseball in 1963. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969 receiving 93% of the first ballot vote.
Stan Musial, we Red Bird fans thank you for your contributions to the game, the team and the city of St. Louis.
