Baseball Mourns the Loss of Two Hall of Famer’s
A sad day Saturday for the national pastime as two of baseball’s greats, Stan “The Man” Musial and Earl Weaver-both members of the Hall of Fame passed away. Two more different personalities would be hard to find but both shared a passion for the game and a drive for excellence.
Stan Musial, who passed at age 92 at home surrounded by family, was a St. Louis legend, perhaps the greatest and most beloved Cardinal to ever wear the uniform. A true gentleman about whom nary a cross word was ever spoken or written he is immortalized in not one but two statues outside Busch Stadium. Earl Weaver, who succumbed to a heart attack while on a cruise ship at age 82, was the temperamental, sharp tongued manager of the Baltimore Orioles who took the club to 4 World Series winning one of 1970. Both men are enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and will be long remembered.
