Stan Musial

What Derek Jeter is to the New York Yankees and Yankees fans, Stan Musial has been to St. Louis and Cardinals fans for more than 70 years.

When he came up with the Cardinals in 1941 he was labeled a can’t-miss star outfielder and he didn’t disappoint. In his first three full seasons (’42-’44), Musial helped the Redbirds to three pennants and two World Series titles. He won seven batting titles, earned three MVP Awards before he turned 28, and made the All-Star team 20 times.
