Default History of Stan The Man

A forgotten part of history was former White Sox pitcher Dickie Kerr (he pitched on the 1919 White Sox team) was the manager of Stan Musial in the minor leagues. Kerr was the one who turned Musial into a full time player. Musial was signed as a pitcher and Kerr thought he was a better hitter than a pitcher. A few years later after Musial made it into the Big Leagues with the Cardinals he bought Kerr a house to show his appreciation.
