The outpouring of love for Stan Musial, who died tonight at the age of 92, has been incredible:
Stan Musial slugged .559 for his career. He struck out 696 times & drew 1,599 walks. Wrap your head around those numbers—

Too many times we use the word "icon", but in this case it doesn't even provide justice for what Stan Musial meant to Cards Nation.—

My goodness...there has never been a more perfect union between an athlete and a town than Stan Musial and St. Louis.—

Stan Musial didn't play a game during 1945 season. He was serving his country during WWII. Then he returned in '46 and won MVP, WS. #Hero—

Stan Musial was the Cardinals. He was St. Louis. A genuine, honest, hard-working family man that will be remembered for generations. RIP.—

Lot of people citing great Musial numbers. My favorite has nothing to do with ball. It’s the nearly 72 years he and Lil were married.—

My prayers are with the Musial family tonight. I will cherish my friendship with Stan for a long as I live. Rest in Peace.—
