CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A Cedar Rapids man may soon be part of the baseball hall of fame in New York

Wednesday, the Iowa Senate passed a resolution urging the sports writers who vote for the hall of famers to add 88-year-old Art Pennington to the list.

Pennington earned the name "Superman" during his years in the Negro baseball league.

He also played professional baseball in Cuba and Mexico before retiring from the sport.

He then worked at Rockwell Collins for 25 years.
