Clearly if you were to name the top five best baseball players in major league history, Stan Musial would obviously be one of those five. One of the great hitters ever to play the game, he played the game like it was to be played. Stan never was thrown out of a game, he led the St. Louis Cardinals to three world series in his career and helped put St. Louis, MO as one of the best baseball towns in America.
