In a 22-year career playing baseball, Stan "The Man" Musial (1920-2013) set a superlative example as both a competitor and human being. Mike Peters notes that the Hall of Famer retired without a blemish on his reputation. In contrast, both Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds set major records in the sport, but unlike Musial, questions about their character kept them out of Cooperstown on the fabled "first ballot."
