St. Louis (KSDK) - The National Sportsmanship Awards are being renamed.
The awards that are held annually in St. Louis by the Sports Commission will now be known as The Musial Awards, after Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial.
The awards honor great sportsmanship stories from around the country, and recognize people with class, character, selflessness, civility, and integrity.
The announcement was made Saturday night during the 2012 National Sportsmanship Awards. Several Musial family members participated in the announcement.
The 2013 Musial Awards will take place in late 2013.
