This day in baseball: Musial named NL MVP

On December 2, 1948, Cardinals outfielder Stan Musial was named the National League Most Valuable Player.  Musial led the NL with a .376 batting average and 131 RBIs.  He narrowly missed the Triple Crown, however, as his 39 home runs were one less than the totals by Johnny Mize and Ralph Kiner.
