Stan the Man's case to be among the best of the best

If there is a silver lining in losing the greatest ambassador St. Louis ever had, it is that Stan Musial's baseball exploits are finally getting their due consideration as we look back on his life. Most Cardinals fans alive today have never seen Musial play. His last game in the majors was 50 years ago. And little video remains of his highlights. While he was alive he became known for what a wonderful person he was more than what a great ballplayer.
