Per @baseball_ref ... Stan Musial stepped to the plate 700 times in 1942. He struck out just 18 times. Oh my. And he had 81 RBI and 81 EXB.
Baseball Hall of Famer Stan 'The Man' Musial dies at 921/20/2013
Stan "The Man" Musial, the Hall of Fame outfielder who played his entire career with one team, has died at age 92. Musial played for the St. Louis Cardinals from 1941-63, though he missed the 1945 season to serve in World War II. He was a three-time National League MVP. Musial was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1969 and still ranks in the top 10 in many offensive stats, including hits, runs scored and RBIs. He was involved in the Cardinals' organization for decades after his retirement, and Busch Stadium has both a statue and a street named in his honor. "Stan Musial was the greatest player in Cardinals history and one of the best players in the history of baseball," said Cardinals Chairman William DeWitt Jr. Not a bad legacy, Stan. [Source]
