Ralph asked: Example: Stan Musial has multiple years in which his game appearances exceed the number of games played by his team that season in non playoff years.

Rick answered: Ralph, thank you for your inquiry.

I would need some additional background within your question to be able to comment on it.

Where did you locate these stats that you are asking about?

Were they only Stan Musial stats, or were there additional players where their stats also did not match up?

If you resubmit your question with the additional information, I can look and see.

Yours in baseball,

Stan Musial Games Played
by: Louis

This probably includes games played that exceeded 5 innings but was not completed. This game will appear on players stats but not on team record. Re. Tie games that are not completed, because of rain as an example, but exceeded 5 innings. This will appear on player stats but not team record. Team will possibly make up game but rain out game will not show on team record statistic. Since it is an official game and player actually played with catches, at bats, hits and so on, those games appear on their statistics.
