Stanley Frank "Stan" Musial (born November 21 1920) born Stanisław Franciszek Musiał (pronounced /ˈmjuːziəl/) is a retired American professional baseball player who was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969. Nicknamed "Stan the Man" Musial played 22 seasons in Major League Baseball for the St. Louis Cardinals from 1941 to 1963. A 24 time All-Star selection Musial accumulated 3 630 hits and 475 home runs during his career and was also named the National League's Most Valuable Player three times.Musial was born in Donora Pennsylvania where he frequently played baseball in both informal and organized settings eventually playing on the baseball team at Donora High School. Signed to a professional contract by the St. Louis Cardinals as a pitcher in 1938 by the time Musial made his Major League debut on September 17 1941 he had been converted into an outfielder. In 1943 Musial finished the season leading the National League in six different offensive categories concurrently earning his first MVP award. After winning his second World Series in 1944 Musial missed the entire 1945 season while serving with the United States Navy. Over the course of his career Musial accumulated 3 630 hits 475 home runs and three World Series championships. After retiring at the end of the 1963 season Musial later became General Manager of the Cardinals in 1966 overseeing the club's World Championship 1967 season before stepping down from the post after one year. Elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969 on his first ballot Musial was selected for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team in 1999. The 2009 Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be the 80th midseason exhibition between the all-stars of the American League (AL) and the National League (NL) the two leagues comprising Major League Baseball. The game will be held on July 14 2009 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis Missouri the home of the National League St. Louis Cardinals. The game will be the first all-star game held in St. Louis since 1966. This will be the seventh year in which the All-Star Game determines home field advantage in the 2009 World Series with the American League winning all six games to date under this format. Currently the National League leads 40–37–2 but has not won since 1996. Fox will televise the contest with Joe Buck and Tim McCarver in the booth for the game broadcast. Pre-game coverage will begin at 7 on ESPN. Outside the USA Rogers Sportsnet (Canada) and ESPN America (Europe) will carry MLB's international feed with their own video feed and announcers.The Cardinals had hoped to use the event to show off its planned Ballpark Village residential and entertainment complex to be built on the site of the former Busch Memorial Stadium across the street from the new ballpark. However the plans have not materialized and Cardinals in March said they will use the old park for a softball field and parking lot during the game.On April 22 2009 All-Star balloting began on MLB.com with eight position players (excluding pitchers and designated hitters) from each of the 30 teams being nominated for fans to vote. As with last year only 25 email ballots could be cast and voting officially ended at 11:59 ET on July 2. Final Rosters with the exception of the final vote were announced on July 5.Fans voted for up to three players per league to participate in the State Farm Home Run Derby
