Rk Player HR. From To Age
1 Ken Griffey 630 11 21 1989 2010 19-40

They gave him horse and harness, helmet and mail,
A jeweled shield, an ancient battle-sword,
Such gifts as are the hero's hard reward
And bid him do again what he has done.
These things he stowed beneath his parting sail,
And wept that he could share them with no son.
He died in his own country a kinless king,
A name heavy with deeds, and mourned as one
Will mourn for the frozen year when it is done.
They buried him next the sea on a thrust of land;
Twelve men rode round his barrow all in a ring,
Singing of him what they could understand.
Somebody called Mike Francessa today to talk about Musial and Mike kept coming back to the "fact" that "The Man" and Ken Griffey JUNIOR were both from Donora, Pennsylvania. He must have said Junior 5 times. Nobody corrected him, which was sad, because I know he would have denied saying it and Mushnick would have half a column written for him.
#6. You think they're rending their garments now. Wait till they have to listen to their other announcers full time.
really. if lyons or steiner inherits the job i might have to turn off the sound for the games on tv. maybe they could overspend on jon miller.
Anyone who has watched Cardinals broadcasts over the years has heard this story numerous times.
Also, the level of Stan Musial hero worship in St. Louis is frankly kind of creepy.
