Finally, here is a biography of Stan Musial that is worthy of the player himself. The author, who grew up in Musial's hometown, has spent years researching the slugger's life and career. The result is a biography broad in scope and deep in analysis. Stan the Man details not only the personality and the accomplishments of the man but artfully examines Musial's life against the backdrop of the Great Depression (which the already-impoverished Musial family endured), race and integration, and the tragedy that struck his hometown of Donora, Pennsylvania, and claimed many lives, including ultimately his father's. The slew of never-before-published material and revealing anecdotes gained through numerous exclusive interviews with former classmates, relatives, friends, teammates, and contemporaries allow this book to shed fresh light on the legendary Musial while making the book a must-read for all baseball fans.

Player Biography
“Here stands baseball’s perfect warrior. Here stands baseball’s perfect knight,” once proclaimed Ford C. Frick of Stan Musial. After 22 years with the St. Louis Cardinals, Musial ranked at, or near, the top of baseball’s all-time lists in nearly every offensive category. The slugging outfielder topped the .300 mark in 17 consecutive seasons and won seven National League batting titles with his famed “corkscrew” stance and ringing line drives. A three-time Most Valuable Player, “The Man” played in 24 All-Star games and was a member of three World Series championship teams. In 1948, he fell one home run shy of capturing the Triple Crown.
