JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KMOX) - First a bridge, now a holiday. Missouri state lawmakers voiced approval to name a holiday after a Cardinals legend in a hearing Tuesday.

“Stan Musial Day” would be on November 21, Musial’s birthday.

Representative Dwight Scharnhorst (R-Manchester) has filed a bill to name the new I-70 bridge after Musial and says he is also on board with the new holiday.

“He’s one of those people that if I ever, with my two grandsons, if I ever had to leave town in an emergency, and I needed to leave them with anybody, you could leave them with Stan Musial and never have to worry,” he said.

Scharnhorst says if approved, “Stan Musial Day” would only be a state holiday. That means no one would get off work because on behalf of Musial.
