Stan Musial turns 90 years old today. Thanks to Mike for the link to a piece on him from American Thinker.
Even if, like Yours Truly, you’re lacking in the most impressive level of knowledge when it comes to baseball history, you don’t have to read very far even in his Wikipedia entry to realize that Mr. Musial qualifies as a genuine living American treasure.
He seems to a be a guy who has always been humble about the great blessings he received, and employed them with dedication and integrity, and also someone who has spent a lot of time spreading blessings to others along the way.
It’s recently been announced that Mr. Musial will be among those receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom this year.
And he’s not half-bad on the old mouth organ either. (So there’s your Bob Dylan connection.)
