My mom and dad met Musial once. My mom could not tell you what position he played but whenever he was mentioned somewhere she always interjected about how nice he was. That kind of thing carries with you and you could tell Stan had it judging by everyone's opinion of him throughout baseball and the general public.

By contrast, I met Barry Bonds at a signing once. This was back in 1993 or so, thus he was a superstar but not BONDS so to speak. In any event, when my time up in line came to get my baseball autographed I said "Hi Barry, great to meet you, how's it goin'?". Without looking up from the table he said "Man, I'm just lookin' to get out of here".

At least he was honest back then. LOL.
