Stanley Frank Musial, nicknamed “Stan the Man”, was an American baseball outfielder and first baseman. He spent 22 seasons in Major League Baseball..
Stan Musial hit the ball the wrong way. Corkscrew stance. Off-balance follow-through. Inside-out swing. But Stan Musial played baseball the right way. More than half a century after his retirement, Musial remains the face of a Cardinals’ franchise he helped turn into a dynasty.
Born Nov. 21, 1920 in Donora, Pa., Stanley Frank Musial began his pro baseball career as a left-handed pitcher in 1938 after signing with the Cardinals. Based on the fact that Musial hit .352 in his part-time outfield duty in 1940. The next year, Musial sailed through the vast Cardinals’ minor league system before hitting .426 in a late-season call-up with St. Louis.
In 1942, Musial hit .315 as the Cardinals’ everyday left-fielder – one of only two times he’d dip under the .320 mark in his first 12 full big league seasons.
Musial served the country in the Navy in 1945.
Musial hit a career-high .376; missing the Triple Crown by just one home run. He played in 24 All-Star gameswon three MVP awards in this career. When he retired after the 1963 season, Musial had a NL record 3,630 hits, 1,815 at home, and 1,815 on the road and a .331 batting average.
“Unless you give it all you’ve got, there isn’t any sense in playing,” Musial said.
The wooden trophy bat pictured above is Stan Musial’s Hall of Fame Stat Bat. Musial’s 34″ bat features a smooth, natural finish. Because of this, Musial’s bat is a perfect commemoration of one of baseball’s best. One of its many great features includes the National Baseball Hall of Fame logo and a collection of his career statistics. The National Baseball Hall of Fame logo is engraved at the end of the barrel. We have engraved Musial’s number 6 hand painted in color with his silhouette to the left. His statistics are engraved between.
