I was just going to let today pass by without a comment regarding Stan Musial’s receiving of the President Medal of Freedom. Why? Because at 25 years old, I’ve never seen Musial play baseball. Even my father was not much older than a toddler when Stan wrapped up his playing days. So I don’t have any first hand knowledge of the St. Louis legend known as “Stan the Man.”
But I do know statistics, and I do know history.
