Musial retired after the 1963 season.  Wow, that's a long time ago.  And he and his wife (who died last year) were married for 71 years.

As one of his supporters said (paraphrased), after the disclosures this week about one formerly admired athlete, it makes you appreciate even more a man like Musial.

And Earl Weaver and the Orioles were synonymous growing up for me.

I'd head about Earl.  Not Stan. :(

Earl Weaver is probably the first 'baseball' name I ever knew.  As you say, he WAS the Baltimore Orioles when I was growing up. . .

I remember Stan Musial from when I was growing up in the 1950s. We didn't have a major league team in Atlanta then, so kids picked their favorites from other teams. Stan the Man was one of mine. He was a great player.

Is 82 the magic number for old timey ball players, or something?

Earl Weaver was 82; Stan Musial was 92. (Married for 71 years.) Not a young whippersnapper like Earl. :D
