This day in baseball: A short, but sweet, tenure

Four years after his last game played on the field, Stan Musial accepted the position of general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals on January 23, 1967.  He became the first GM to win the World Series in his first season in the position, but then proceeded to quit the job after only ten months.
