Great stat.... 3630 total hits... 1815 at home and 1815 on the road!

 

He played nearly until 43rd birthday, adding to his totals. He got a hit with his final swing, sending an RBI single past Cincinnati's rookie second baseman -- that was Pete Rose, who would break Musial's league hit record of 3,630 some 18 years later.

 

You are the Man! RIP

I found another interesting bit of trivia---

 

He once played the National Anthem on the harmonica before a Cardinals game.
