Stan The Man and Earl

Baseball lost two Hall of Famers today. Stan(The Man)Musial and Earl Weaver.
Growing up Stan the Man was my 2nd favorite baseball player next to Mickey Mantle. I remmber listening to Cardinal baseball games on KMOX radio out of St.Louis at night (Could not pick the station up in the day time.) He was one of the all time greats.
I always enjoyed Earl Weaver never ending battles with the umpires. Once when Earl was ejected (91 times in all) He told the umpire he was going to look up that rule in his baseball rule book. The umpire took a rule book out of his pocket and said to Earl "read mine". Earl said "No I can't read braille'"

Wow, two legends on the same day. It's a sad day. They were both characters though.
