#Sports: New Ben Roethlisberger display at Heinz History Center

The season isn’t over, but the folks at the Sen. John Heinz History Center and Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum didn’t want to wait to commemorate Ben Roethlisberger’s back-to-back, record-setting passing performances against Indianapolis and Baltimore.

A new display, featuring the jerseys he wore while lighting-up the Colts and Ravens, now greets visitors on the first floor of the center’s Great Hall.

Roethlisberger threw his way into the history books with 12 touchdown passes covering nearly 900 yards in the two Steeler wins.

"Here's hoping the run of late-season dominance and playoff fireworks the Steelers are about to begin will give the History Center much more to enshrine."
