The Illinois House of Representatives today approved a resolution paying tribute to the late Stan Musial. House Joint Resolution 23 (HJR 23) sponsored by Illinois State Representative Dwight Kay (R-Glen Carbon) designates January 19th as Stan Musial Day in Illinois.
“Stan Musial wasn’t just another baseball player, Stan ‘The Man’ was a role model, veteran and humanitarian,” said Rep. Kay. “Musial played his entire 22 year career with the Cardinals and is widely proclaimed as the greatest St. Louis Cardinal of all time. Cardinal Nation will never forget Stan ‘The Man’ Musial, naming January 19th as ‘Stan Musial Day’ in Illinois is another way for us to show our respect and appreciation for the late Stan Musial.”
