"We have lost the most beloved member of the Cardinals family," Cardinals chairman William DeWitt Jr. said in a press release. "Stan Musial was the greatest player in Cardinals history and one of the best players in the history of baseball."
Musial spent 22 seasons in the majors, all with St. Louis, and played in 24 All-Star Games. The career .331 hitter won seven batting titles, including in 1948 when he hit a career-best .376. Musial also led the league in RBIs twice and won three MVP awards. During World War II, he spent the 1945 season in military service.
In 1969, Musial was inducted into the Hall of Fame, following a career in which he helped bring three World Series championships to St. Louis. Musial also served in the Cardinals' front office for 25 years after retiring from the game. In 2010, he received a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The Cardinals have set up a page on their website where fans can pay tribute to the legend and offer condolences to his family.
