Musial elected to WPIAL HOF
Donora native Stan Musial, easily one of the best baseball players to come from Western Pennsylvania, has been selected to the WPIAL Hall of Fame.
Part of the third class, along with Washington High School's Brian Davis, Musial played baseball, football and basketball at Donora High School, now part of the Ringgold School District.
Musial, 88, played 22 seasons, all with the St. Louis Cardinals. A three-time National League MVP, Musial finished his Hall of Fame career with a .331 batting average, 3,630 hits and 475 home runs. He was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969, on his first ballot, and named the baseball's all-century team in 1999.
