Yesterday, I mentioned in a piece here about Stan (the Man) Musial that he was considered was one of the nicest people to ever play baseball, and most especially the nicest superstar, among the all-time greats.
As timing would have it, reader Carolyn Brown sent along an article here in yesterday's St. Louis Post-Dispatch, about the Musial family settling his estate and how some of the items give an insight into who Stan Musial was -- a man the mention was often referred to as "the perfect knight."
One passage leaps out. If my point was made before, this should settle it.
Three other auction lots also reveal something about who Musial was.
And another reason why he was known as "The Man."
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
