Stan Musial, 1B/OF


Career: 1941-63, Cardinals
Fun fact: 1,815 hits both home and road

The Man led the league in batting seven times, hit 475 home runs, scored nearly as many runs (1,949) as he drove in (1,951), won three MVP awards, and made 20 All-Star Games.

Not bad for a guy who started his career as a pitcher (he was 18-5 with a 2.62 ERA for the Cardinals' Class D team in 1940, his final season on the mound). --Jim Caple
