Veteran sports journalist George Vecsey finally gives this twenty-time All-Star and St. Louis Cardinals icon the biographical treatment he deserves. Stan Musial is the definitive portrait of one of the games best-loved but most unappreciated legendstold through the remembrances of those who played beside, worked with, and covered Stan the Man over the course of his nearly seventy years in the national spotlight. Away from the diamond, Musial proved a savvy businessman and a model of humility and graciousness toward his many fans in St. Louis and around the world. From Keith Hernandezs boyhood memories of Musial leaving tickets for him when the Cardinals were in San Francisco to the little-known story of Musials friendship with novelist James Michener, Vecsey weaves an intimate oral history around one of the great gentlemen of baseballs Greatest Generation.
