Click here to sign this KMOX petition which could name a new Mississippi Bridge after Stan Musial. Stan’s family loves the idea, saying:

“He really did connect east and west. When he played, the Cardinals were the west-most team, so he really did connect the country,” Musial grandson Brian Schwarze told KMOX. ”That would just such a great honor, to be able to have a bridge named after him.”
