LETTER: Long-time hero will be missed

Dear Editor:

I would like to mention a hero of mine that died last week — Stan “The Man” Musial.

When I was a young man on the farm, before television, I would listen to the St. Louis Cardinals’ games on Radio Station KMOX in St. Louis.

Whenever the team needed a “clutch hit,” Stan Musial would get it. I remember one time when, in the 1950s, he hit five home runs in a doubleheader. I have been a Cardinals fan ever since, and Musial was my hero. He was a great citizen and ambassador for the game. The world of baseball will miss him.
