ST. LOUIS — A section of Interstate 64 in the St. Louis area could be renamed for legendary sportscaster Jack Buck, who died in 2002.

A portion of the interstate from St. Louis to the Illinois state line could become known as the "Jack Buck Memorial Highway."

A bill passed in the Missouri legislature last week would allow the designation. It has not yet been signed into law.

Buck did radio broadcasts of St. Louis Cardinals games for almost 50 years. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1987.
