21-yr-old Stan Musial at Sportsman’s Park, Friday, April 10, 1942. Stan and the Cardinals were working out at the stadium, as they had just arrived north for a weekend City Series with the Browns; the teams split 2 games, with Musial going 4-5 with 4 RBI, in preparation for the season opener April 14. Musial, in his first full season, would hit .315 as the Cardinals were 1942 World Champs. And Stan had plenty of thrills to come.
