Cardinals broadcaster (and former player) Mike Shannon.
St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - Former Cardinals player and current television broadcaster Mike Shannon champions Stan "The Man" Musial in a sit-down interview with NewsChannel 5 Sports Director Rene Knott.
Shannon recalls a nationwide poll was run in the early 1960s--while President Kennedy was still in office--asking people to name the most trusted man in America. Despite the presence of generals, noted political leaders, members of the clergy, etc., Shannon says Stan Musial trumped them all.
Musial is an "unbelievably perfect person," according to Shannon, and forever remained "a true gentleman."
