Joe Posnanski on Stan Musial

In case you missed it, here’s a great where are they now piece done by Joe Posnanski in SI last week about Stan Musial. Stan Musial is a great man, in every way that greatness can be measured.

“Stan Musial didn’t hit in 56 straight games,” says Musial’s friend Bob Costas, who began his broadcasting career with KMOX in St. Louis. “He didn’t hit .400 for a season. He didn’t get 4,000 hits. He didn’t hit 500 home runs. He didn’t hit a home run in his last at bat, just a single. He didn’t marry Marilyn Monroe; he married his high school sweetheart. His excellence was a quiet excellence.”
