Consistency was Musial’s hallmark during legendary career
On June 12, 1957, Musial appeared in his 823rd straight game for the St. Louis Cardinals, a streak that dated back to Opening Day of the 1952 season. It set a National League record, breaking the mark set by Pirates first baseman Gus Suhr from 1931-37.
