The KC Star had a great article on Stan this AM. Some things I learned: He had an equal number of hits at home and on the road, 1815 each. He played over 1000 games at two different positions, outfield and first base. He never got kicked out of a game, ever. He was married to his high school sweetheart for 71 years before she passed last year. He was GM of the Cards for just one year, and that year they won the WS vs. Boston in 1967. He asked the Cards front office to give him a pay cut after the 1959 season because he hit under .300 (are you listening Luke Ho-Chaser?) He hit a single in his last AB. He played his whole career in St. Louis, and lived his remaining life -including over 40 years as a MLB HOFer- in St. Louis.

Epitome of class. They don't make em like this any more.
