May 19, 1962: Another Milestone For The Man

 On May 19, 1962, Stan "The Man" Musial picked up the 3,431st hit of his career during the ninth inning of an 8-1 win over the Dodgers in Los Angeles. The historic single off of Ron Perranoski pushed him past the legendary Honus Wagner in the hits department, and made him the National League's all time hits leader. Musial received a standing ovation from the L.A. fans before being pulled for a pinch runner. Today, his 3,630 career hits ranks fourth on the all time list. Only Pete Rose, Ty Cobb, and Hank Aaron have picked up more than the one, the only Stan "The Man" Musial.
