Found January 19, 2013 on The Victory Formation:
Sad news in the baseball world continues today, as Stan Musial, the great St Louis Cardinals outfielder, has passed away at the age of 92. Musial played all 22 of his Major League seasons in St Louis, where became known as “Stan the Man.” He is regarded as one of the greatest ball players of all-time. The three-time MVP hit over 475 home runs, batted in 1951 RBIs, and recorded 1949 runs. He was a career .331 hitter, and he won the batting crown 7 times. Even more impressive is his career OBP of .417. His 1948 MVP season was probably his best, when he hit .376, hit 39 home runs, and knocked in 131 runs. Musial missed the entire 1945 season while serving in the United States Navy. This was the second legend in baseball to pass away on January 19th, as Earl Weaver passed earlier in the day at the age of 82 following a heart attack.
