Hall of Fame Major League Baseball Player. For twenty-two seasons (1941 to 1944 and 1946 to 1963), he played at the outfielder and first-baseman positions with the St. Louis Cardinals. One of the most prolific players in baseball history, he captured a remarkable seven batting titles, while earning three Most Valuable Player Awards (1943, 1946 and 1948). Born Stanley Frank Musial in Donora, Pennsylvania (not far from Pittsburgh), his father was a zinc miner, Stan was an exceptional athlete during his high school years as he participated in basketball and baseball. In spite of his father's objections, Stan pursued a career in baseball and signed as an amateur free agent with the Cardinals. After a remarkable four-year period (1938 to 1941) in the Minor Leagues (that included pitching), he was promoted the the Major Leagues at the age of twenty on September 17th, 1941. A glimpse of his greatness was revealed in 12 games that year as he recorded 20 hits with a .426 batting average. In 1942, he experienced the first of four National League Pennant-winning seasons (1942, 1943, 1944 and 1946), for which included three World Championships (1942, 1944 and 1946). His career yielded to his service with the United States Navy during World War II in 1945. In 3,026 regular season games, Musial compiled 3,630 hits with a .331 lifetime batting average. He received All-Star honors 20-times during the course of his career. He held the record for most hits in the National League until Pete Rose surpassed him in 1981. After retiring as a player, he remained with the Cardinals' organization to serve within their front office for which included a stint as general manager in 1967. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969. (bio by: C.S.)
