Earl Weaver, 82, Stan Musial, 92, ... RIP.

Sorry to hear about Musial's passing, but what is the connection between Stan the Man and Earl Weaver? One was a good guy, the other ... well, not quite.

Don't think I ever saw The Man play in person, but I did see him play many times on TV. Weird batting stance, but the guy could hit.

Didn't realize that Musial was never ejected for arguing with an umpire. That's quite a record, considering how many games he played.

Baseball?

Stan was soft-spoken; Earl was out-spoken.

They usually pass in 3s; waiting for the 3rd set of cleats to drop.

No connection, other than they are both legitimately Hall of Famers and among the most memorable people to play (or manage) the game.

One was a gentleman, the other an agitator. Both were masters of the art of winning.
