Recommended Read: Stan Musial (An American Life)

I read George Vescey’s Stan Musial: An American Life over the course of several flights last month, and was just wrapping it up when Stan the Man himself passed away. Vescey covers Musial’s career in great depth but also gives plenty of space to his pre- and post-playing life. Musial is beloved in St. Louis but has largely been ignored over time, at least in comparison to the other star players of his era that played in New York. After this book you’ll have a much greater appreciation for Stan the player and Stan the Man.
