The greatest Cardinals player of them all, Stan "The Man" Musial broke the National League Record for consecutive games played on June 12, 1957.
With his 823rd game played in a row, Musial broke the mark of Gus Suhr in a 4-0 St. Louis win over Philadelphia. The Man, playing first base, was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored to raise his batting average to .356 for the season.
The streak ended at 895 games on Aug. 12, 1957. Musial hadn't missed a game since April 15, 1952. The mark still stands as the third-longest consecutive games played streak in National League history behind Steve Garvey (1,207) and Billy Williams (1,117).
