SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — The newest members of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame include men who helped lead the St. Louis Cardinals to championships in the 1960s.

The Hannibal Courier-Post reports that Roger Maris and Curt Flood were inducted Thursday in Springfield, along with scout Tom Greenwade. Another Cardinals star from the era, Mike Shannon, was honored as the 26th Missouri Sports Legend with a bust at the museum. Shannon has been a broadcaster for the team for more than four decades.

The ceremony also honored the 1964 and 1967 World Series champion Cardinals teams. Flood and Shannon were on both teams. Maris was traded from the New York Yankees to the Cardinals prior to the 1967 season.

All three also played on the 1968 team that lost the World Series to Detroit.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Operators of a Missouri movie theater are apologizing for a stunt in which an actor dressed in black, wearing body armor and carrying a fake rifle walked into the movie house.

The stunt occurred last weekend during a promotion for the movie "Iron Man 3" at the Goodrich Capital 8 Theaters in Jefferson City.

Actors appeared at the theater, including some dressed as officers and one as Iron Man. Another actor was wearing what appeared to be assault gear and carrying a rifle.

Some frightened moviegoers called 911, recalling the shooting in July at a Colorado movie theater during the premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises." That attack killed 12 people.

Management apologized Friday on the theater's Facebook page, saying it was meant to be part of the entertainment.

 

A St. Louis Sports Hall of Fame could be on its way to downtown.

Greg Marecek, who heads the hall of fame, is looking to move the display from Scottrade Center to a freestanding three-level museum at Union Station. The Post-Dispatch reports the building would cost $25 million and Marecek hopes to raise a third of that money this year.

Union Station is a more appealing site because owner, Lodging Hospitality Management, plans to spend $25 million to upgrade the facility.

If funding is secured, construction on the Hall of Fame would take about a year.
