The great Stan Musial died today at the age of 92. Mr Musial was one of the all time great ball players and played his whole 22 year career for the St Louis Cardinals.
Mr Musial had over 3600 hits and 450 home runs and a lifetime batting average of well over 300.

Also today the great former manager of the Baltimore Orioles Earl Weaver died. Mr Weaver was 82 years old. He brought the Orioles to four World Series and Winning one Championship. Mr Weaver was a very colorful manager to say the least.

Both of these great gentlemen will be missed.

For our younger members, these men are tied to history but for those of us old enough to remember they are part of our memories. Even I, who has an almost total lack of interest in sports, remembers these two men of baseball.

They both were class acts, definitely baseballs ambassadors.

Two great baseball men in very different ways. Musial was one of the most consistent players ever and Weaver will always be that little dynamo of a manager who lived baseball each and every moment. I have fond memories of watching his great Oriole teams with the likes of Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson, Boog Powell and Jim Palmer.

I live for baseball and these two men were huge losses. Stan Musial was one of the finest gentlemen to ever play the game and Earl Weaver was one of the craziest, smartest men to manage it. Sad day, for sure.
