The great Stanley Frank Musial of the St. Louis Cardinals, of course. He got the name when a sportswriter overheard a Brooklyn Dodger fan say 'uh-oh, here comes that man again' as Musial was walking to the plate at a game at Ebbetts Field, sometime in the 40s. In 1946 Musial led the National League in games played, at-bats, runs scored, hits, singles, doubles, triples, RBIs, total bases, slugging percentage, and batting average.
Stan the Man went into the Hall of Fame in 1968.
