  • Musial's name

    Everyone knows Stan Musial was of Polish ancestry, but do you know what his name means in Polish, or how it's pronounced?

    "Musial" is a verb, corresponding to the English auxiliary verb "must" in the past tense, masculine third person singular, and occurs commonly in Polish.. Normally translates into English as "He had to . . . "

    It is pronounced /moo-show/, rhyming with "cow". accented equally on both syllables. If he were playing today, and born in Poland, the announcers would probably pronounce his name that way, the way they do nowadays for foreign-born basketball or hockey players.
