Trivia Answer:
Richard Musial was named after Dickie Kerr.  Kerr, of Chicago Black Sox fame, coached the Rice baseball team in 1927 and 1928.  Later, as a minor league manager, he converted the 19 year old Stan Musial from a pitcher to an outfielder.  In gratitude, Musial named his son after him.  Click here for his very interesting story.
