It seemed like I always did some great hitting in Brooklyn. The field there was close to the stands. Every time I started walking to the plate, I could hear the fans say, ‘Here comes that man again. Here comes that man.’Stan Musial
When we played the Dodgers in St. Louis, they had to come through our dugout, and our bat rack was right there where they had to walk. My bats kept disappearing, and I couldn’t figure it out. Turns out, Pee Wee Reese was stealing my bats. I found that out later, after we got out of baseball. He and Rube Walker stole my bats.Stan Musial
Always wanted to be a Major League player. Loved baseball. Followed it. Loved to play. Plus, I could always hit.Stan Musial
Used to be bats had thick handles and a big barrel. Then they found it’s not the size of the bat that gets home runs – it’s the speed with which you can swing it.Stan Musial
I consciously memorized the speed at which every pitcher in the league threw his fastball, curve, and slider. Then, I’d pick up the speed of the ball in the first 30 feet of its flight and knew how it would move once it has crossed the plate.Stan Musial
