Here are a couple stories about Stan “The Man” Musial:
Here is my story that aired last night on 790 KABC as part of the Lasorda at His Best series presented by Skechers:
We were up in the western part of the state of Pennsylvania and Stan Musial, who was born and raised there was at the dinner with us. He was at the podium making his remarks, and sometimes when Stan gets started it’s hard to get off.
Joe Garagiola told all of us at the table that if he stays up there any longer that we’ll all get up; he would throw Stan the keys and tell him to lock up when he’s finished.
At another dinner in Pittsburgh I looked out of the window and it started to snow. I thought we had to get out of town quick or else we would be stuck. I talked to Stan and to Bob Prince, and we agreed that we had to leave. I found out there was only one plane leaving. We drove to the airport and as we were pulling up there a few guys hollering at Stan.
Stan threw the guys his keys and said, “Those are the keys for my rental car. Turn it back in for me!”
