Late, legendary ST. LOUIS CARDINALS HALL OF FAME radio voice JACK BUCK will be honored with a portion of I-64 running through ST. LOUIS being renamed the JACK BUCK HIGHWAY. A ceremony renaming the road took place SUNDAY, and the road is being reopened TODAY (12/7).
BUCK, who passed away in 2002, called CARDINALS games on CBS RADIO Talk KMOX-A/ST. LOUIS for several years and also worked on network TV calling baseball and football; his son JOE BUCK is FOX SPORTS' lead baseball and football play-by-play broadcaster.
