Footage of Stan the Man

It's pretty low quality video, but you take what you can get. Musial was mostly absent for Ken Burns' Baseball for just this reason. The video is interesting only because I'm not sure I've ever seen his swing before.

Joe Posnanski wrote about Ken Griffey Jr. and Musial:

I have a lot to say about Musial but I'll save that and for now just give you one of Bill James’ absolute favorite baseball facts. You probably already know that both Griffey and Musial were born in Donora, Pa.

So Ken Griffey Jr. is the second-best, left-hand hitting, left-hand throwing outfielder ever born in Donora, Pa.

On November 21st.
