As a tribute to No. 6, Stan Musial, I’m posting a different historical photo of the greatest Cardinal each day for six consecutive days, Jan. 21-26, 2013. Musial, 92, died Jan. 19, 2013. Each photo is a copy I have collected from a library or archive.
This is the second of the six:
The brilliant Cardinals pitcher Dizzy Dean (jacket and tie) is flanked by outfielders, left to right, Stan Musial, Enos Slaughter and Terry Moore.
When the Cardinals won the 1942 World Series championship, their outfield was Musial in left, Moore in center and Slaughter in right. In his book “Stan Musial: The Man’s Own Story,” Musial wrote that Moore was a “timely hitter who’ll be best remembered for his defensive plays, his ham-sized hands, accurate arm and ability to scoop up ground balls like an infielder.” Musial said Slaughter “had to be the greatest hustler of all-time.”
