McGwire Highway may get name change

Monday, March 1, 2010 - 8:54pm

The Missouri Senate wants to take away Mark McGwire's highway.

A stretch of Interstate 70 in St. Louis was designated the
Mark McGwire Highway in 1999, one year after the Cardinals slugger
hit a then-record 70 home runs.

But McGwire has now admitted he used steroids, and the state
Senate voted unanimously Monday to rename the section of interstate
the Mark Twain Highway. The measure now goes to the House.
