Stan Musial's Hits and Whiffs

There are so many reasons to admire Stan Musial but one I can't get over is this: Stan the Man had 3630 hits and just 696 strikeouts.

Among his hits were 475 homers, 725 doubles, and 177 triples.

Here are the 25 players with at least 3000 listed by strikeouts

The only one close to Musial, who was also a prolific home run hitter, was Al Kaline who had 3007 hits, 399 homers, and 1020 homers.
