TURN BACK THE CLOCK 1954: STAN "THE MAN" MUSIAL SLAMS FIVE HOME RUNS IN DOUBLE-HEADER

Let’s go and give Stan Musial a “Turn Back the Clock” 20th anniversary card for his montrous day at the plate on May 2nd, 1954 against the New York Giants:


Stan was definitely “The Man” that day, going 4 for 4 in the first game, with three homers and six runs batted in, helping the Cardinals beat the Giants 10-6 at Busch Stadium.
Then, as if that wasn’t enough, Musial proceeds to go 2 for 4 in the second game, with two homers off of future Hall of Fame pitcher Hoyt Wilhelm.
It wasn’t enough to help the Cards beat the Giants though, as the New Yorkers win 9-7, but for Musial he went a combined 6 for 8 with five home runs and nine runs batted in and six runs scored!
Just one of the many accomplishments for Musial that still makes him one of the greatest hitters in baseball history.
