Stan, The Man has departed

The world has lost a great ball player. St. Louis will not be the same without his presence.

Great ballplayer and nice guy. I met Stan about 20 years ago at bar he owned in St. Louis. He gave me a small autographed baseball cap for my son gratis. My son still has the cap.

The 'game' of pro baseball has changed Big-Time. The major players today are strictly in it for the $$$.

The 'game' will miss men like STAN the MAN

Growing up in Central Illinois, got to see him play many times in the 1940's and 50's. Also got to see Joe Dimaggio a few times when the Yankee's came to St. Louis to play the Browns before they moved to Baltimore in '53. Stan and Joe would have had much greater numbers if they were hitting against todays soft pitching. "Back in the day" there was only 8 teams in each league and you had to be a great ball player just to make the team. As they say "Baseball, Hotdogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet" Tennesseecozydog.

A true gentleman.

Stan has always been a true gentleman. His fame really didn't seem to go to his head and always shared nice words with everyone. While playing he lived in a nice neighborhood (not ritzy) in the city. Most players moved to the big houses in St. Louis County...but not Stan until later in his life. My wife as a child used to trick or treat his house on Halloween. What other ball player would ask his team owner to pay him less next year because he didn't play up to his own standards this year? We lost a true gentleman and friend.
