Welcome to the Musial Awards™, a one-of-a-kind
event honoring the legacy of Stan Musial by celebrating the greatest moments and stories of sportsmanship from around the nation.  Formerly the National Sportsmanship Awards, the event is now named for the late Cardinals Hall of Famer and beloved St. Louis sports icon.

Defined by class, excellence, humility and generosity,
Stan the Man embodied the virtues of sportsmanship. 
So it’s fitting that the most meaningful and
inspiring night in sports now bears his name.

The 2013 Musial Awards took place on November 9 at the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis.  The awards show spotlighted seven remarkable stories of sportsmanship plus the 2013 St. Louis Cardinals, who received the inaugural Musial Award for Extraordinary Character.  Click here to view the videos profiling the Musial Award winners.
