ST. LOUIS Stan Musial, one of baseball´s greatest hitters and a Hall of Famer with the St. Louis Cardinals for more than two decades, died Saturday. He was 92. Stan the Man won seven National League batting titles, was a three-time MVP and helped the Cardinals capture three World Series championships in the 1940s. The Cardinals announced Musial´s death in a news release. They said he died Saturday evening at his home in Ladue surrounded by family. The team said Musial´s son-in-law, Dave Edmonds, informed the club of Musial´s death.

Comments:
Stan Musial was a fantastic baseball player. He was a marvelous human being. It´s a sad day in Red Bird land.

FTA: He led the NL in most every hitting category for at least one year, except homers. He hit a career-high 39 home runs in 1948, falling one short of winning the Triple Crown.

He was one homer short from a lot more than that. For in ´48, Musial led the NL in hits, runs, doubles, triples, RBIs, and was batting champion. He was one HR away from the all-time unparallelled season for a major league hitter.

RIP

Rest well, sir, and well done. Thank you.

IIRC, the Phillies Rich Ashburn finished just behind Musial three times for the NL batting title.

Forget all the records. The "man" handled his life with supreme dignity, and was universally admired for the purity of his character. We need more of this kind of role model in sports, and less of Tiger, Lance, Manti, and the rest.

I virtually grew up in Ebbets Field. Stan The Man used to kill my Bums - - just rip them to pieces. Yet all of us Dodger fans loved the guy. He was cheered to the rafters every time he came to the plate.

Stan always said that Ebbets Field was his favorite ballpark.

Now get this - - he was the best hitter - - by far - - that I ever saw. And that includes Mays, Aaron - - all of them.

RIP, Stan The Man - - with total love from all Brooklyn Dodger fans.

When I was a kid, the Cardinals had a lock on Midwest baseball with their extensive radio network, and Stan Musial was the face of the Cards. Thanks for the memories, Mr. Musial.

The husband of a friend named his only son ´´Stan´´ after Musial. I told my friend she should be glad he wasn´t a fan of Carl Yastrzemski.

RIP, Stan - your legacy will live on.

Stan Musial was 1/2 polish, 1/2 slavish, I believe.
And he had the most peculiar batting stance, but it really worked. But most important---
He was a good and decent man.

The Eisenhower Tree, so much a part of Augusta National that not even a sitting U.S. president could have it taken down, was removed from the 17th hole this weekend because of damage from an ice storm, the club said Sunday. "The loss of the Eisenhower Tree is difficult news to accept," club chairman Billy Payne said. "We obtained opinions from the best arborists available and, unfortunately, were advised that no recovery was possible."

Scottsdale, Ariz. -- Kevin Stadler won the Phoenix Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title when playing partner Bubba Watson missed a 5-footer for par on the final hole. Stadler, the 33-year-old son of PGA Tour winner Craig Stadler, closed with a 3-under 68 for a one-stroke victory over Watson and Canadian Graham DeLaet. Stadler won in his 239th PGA Tour start, earning a spot in the Masters -- a tournament his father won in 1982. The Stadlers are the ninth father-son winners in tour history.

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska piled up more than 500 yards of offense and won its nation-leading 28th straight opener. You wouldn´t have known it from the atmosphere inside the 18th-ranked Cornhuskers´ locker room minutes after their 37-34 victory over Wyoming on Saturday night. "I feel like we lost the game," receiver Kenny Bell said. Up 16 points in the fourth quarter, the Huskers had to sweat this one to the end after the four-touchdown-underdog Cowboys converted two late turnovers into touchdowns. "It wasn´t very excited," receiver Quincy Enunwa said of the mood of the team.

WASHINGTON — The oil industry and U.S railroads are resisting the Obama administration´s attempt to boost safety standards for the type of rail car involved in a fiery, fatal explosion in Canada, citing costs and technical challenges. Industry groups say it is impractical to retrofit tens of thousands of existing tank cars used to haul oil, even as they have adopted voluntary standards to ensure that cars ordered after October 2011 meet tough requirements recommended by federal transportation experts following a deadly ethanol train derailment and explosion in Illinois two years earlier.

CHEYENNE -- State Department of Education funds may have been misspent for pet programs and on in-state travel under the leadership of Cindy Hill. That’s according to information gathered in an investigative report that delves into the agency’s inner workings during Hill’s administration as superintendent of public instruction. Following the signing of Senate File 104 last spring, many of Hill’s responsibilities at the state department were given to an appointed director of education.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. Rory McIlroy abruptly walked off the course Friday at the Honda Classic, telling reporters who followed him to his car he´s "not in a good place mentally." He later said it was more dental than mental, releasing a statement that he couldn´t concentrate because of a sore wisdom tooth. The surprising departure raised serious questions about golf´s No. 1 player with the Masters just more than a month away. McIlroy has played only four rounds in three tournaments this year, and this was a clear sign of frustration.

The Congressional District 2 showdown between Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Ron Barber has gone into overtime - and it could come down to instant replay. McSally holds a minuscule lead of less than two-tenths of a percentage point over Barber - a 400-vote difference in a race in which more 228,000 votes have been tabulated, with several days of additional vote counting to go.

Southern Arizona could be in for a headline-grabbing upset if uncounted votes deliver victory to an upstart Republican over the handpicked successor to former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. GOP candidate Martha McSally, in a move either audacious or foolhardy, has called a news conference for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday to comment on the results of her race against Democratic U.S. Rep Ron Barber. McSally’s campaign projects a win in the race for Congressional District 2, which includes Tucson and all of Cochise County.

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said. As my wife looked at me in disbelief, I quickly added a correction. “Well, almost.” Beset by failures at home and abroad, the president cuts a lonely and sad figure these days. His aura of grief reflects his profound loss. His worldview crashed headlong into reality, and reality won. Obamaism is dead, may it rest in peace. That’s sad for him, but hold the tears — his loss is mankind’s hope. If Obama wakes from his utopian visions and faces the

Donohue Mondaycalled for Catholics to boycott the companies behind Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams for dropping their sponsorship of the parades in New York City and Boston over the refusal of organizers to allow gays and lesbians from marching under a banner.

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Hillary Clinton may well be the most "known" politician in the world. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been on the national stage for more than two decades -- traveling from Arkansas to the White House to the Senate to the 2008 campaign trail and finally to the State Department. During that time, every look and utterance from Hillary has been examined, then examined again, then analyzed, then overanalyzed. That´s why this series of photos -- shot by LIFE magazine in 1969 as part of a feature on outstanding college students -- is so fascinating. It captures

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.
