The real reason my father became a Cardinals fan is simply because of Stan Musial. Musial, who died over the weekend at the age of 92, had not uncoiled his famous swing in a meaningful baseball game in just short of half a century. During that time a legend grew around Stan Musial.
Stan Musial retired after the 1963 season, greatly appreciated in the heartland, but never receiving anywhere near the same national attention as his peers, Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio.
So, why did Stan Lee decide to create the epic World of Heroes on YouTube? It's simple, really. "We put it together for mankind," Lee says.
