Pennsylvania bridge to be renamed for Cardinals' Stan Musial

DONORA, Pa. — The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has approved a measure already passed in the state Senate to rename a southwestern Pennsylvania bridge after native Stan "The Man" Musial, a Hall of Famer who played for baseball's St. Louis Cardinals between 1941 and 1963.

The bridge that carries state Route 1077 over the Monongahela River between Monessen and Musial's hometown of Donora will be renamed once Gov. Tom Corbett approves the measure passed Monday by the state House.

The bridge is about 20 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

State Sen. Tim Solobay, a Washington County Democrat, sponsored the measure which the Senate approved in May.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Solobay said renaming the bridge will "serve as a permanent reminder that, despite humble beginnings, hard work can lead to great accomplishments." Musial collected 3,630 hits in 22 seasons with the Cardinals.
