Stan Musial Passes Away at Age 92

ESPN.com reports the sad news:

Stan Musial, one of baseball's greatest hitters and a Hall of Famer with the St. Louis Cardinals for more than two decades, died Saturday. He was 92.

Stan the Man won seven National League batting titles, was a three-time MVP and helped the Cardinals capture three World Series championships in the 1940s.

The Cardinals announced Musial's death in a news release. They said he died Saturday evening at his home in Ladue surrounded by family. The team said Musial's son-in-law, Dave Edmonds, informed the club of Musial's death.

Joe Posnanski said it best — a sad day for baseball, indeed.

Also, former Orioles manager Earl Weaver passed away today as well.
