(Reuters) - Hall of Fame baseball player Stan Musial, who used an unorthodox batting style to become one of the sport's greatest hitters in 22 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, died on Saturday at age 92, his former team said in a statement.
Musial died at his home in Ladue, Missouri, surrounded by his family, the team said.
