RIP Stan Musial


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

There used to be a saying along the lines of "I'd rather watch Reggie Jackson strike out than see anybody else hit a homer"; I always appreciated his at bats as works of art, even when flawed.

When Musial died, John Batchelor re-broadcast his excellent interview with George Vecsey, author of the 2011 Musial biography. The interview is great (better, IMHO, than the book).

You and I, both. And you''ll note this was the big surprise to the big time baseball fans who populate the baseball think factory board.
