    I'm not sure he ever did, even though he wound up with 475 HR's. Stan was more of a line drive hitter who deserved more credit than he got. A hellofa player was Stash.

    Upon cheating, he never did. In 1949, he came in 2nd w/36 HR's.

    Excellent research. Stan the Man was never considered a home run hitter per se. He had a great day at the Polo Grounds one year vs the Giants hitting 5 home runs in a twin bill.

    If Stan the Man had played his career in NY he probably would have been considered one of the greatest to ever play the game. I know he did get alot of recognition over the years but it would have been greater if it had been in NY!

    off the path...
    Question about Stan:
    His stats show that he pitched in a game in '52, yet he didn't record an out and gave up no hits or walks. The only thing I can think of was that he faced a batter who reached on an error or a fielder's choice. I would think it had to be an inning ending (and game ending) fielder's choice, otherwise if it was an error why would they pull him out (he had to be replaced by someone, so if they had someone, why would he be in there in the first place?)
    Or maybe they brought him in on an off day as a decoy/time killer while the reliever finished getting ready? Not likely in that day of no specialized pitching roles, but you never know...
    Anyone know the details?

    I don't know the details but Stan came up as a pitcher and almost made the Cardinals staff as one. Then they decided, as did the Yankees with Babe, that Stash could serve them better as an everyday player.
