    He was before my time as a player (he was my grandpa's favorite player as a kid), but Stan the Man is almost universally beloved. I also believe he was an Obama supporter and donor.

    Starting with the bolded "Stan Musial" is my favorite Stan the Man stories and one of my favorite baseball stories period regarding a blown call and Stan's reaction to it. In addition to showing Stan as the gentleman he was so well known as, it's a wonderful example of dealing with bad luck caused by human error with dignity and class.

    So goodbye to an incredible ball player, a hero to many, and by all accounts and most importantly, a real gentleman and decent man.
