In the fifth episode of the Sports Plus Rewind, Mike Bush and producer Corey Miller replay a classic Sports Plus interview with baseball hall of famer and legendary all around gentleman, Stan Musial.

Musial was a frequent visitor to the Sports Plus couch, but made this appearance in 1998 in the midst of the McGwire/Sosa home run chase.

"Every time he swings, it might be a homerun," Musial said. "So, it's exciting and the fans love him and he's a great guy. He's doing wonders for baseball."

Mike and Stan talked about hitting in different eras, some cool moments Stan had with presidents, Stan's take on power hitters and even a classic Stan Musial harmonica solo.

Carlton talked about developing his slider, the infamous trade from the Cardinals, entering the Baseball hall of Fame and comeback tease.
