EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A ceremony is being planned in the Indiana hometown of baseball great Don Mattingly to dedicate a street named in his honor.
The Evansville City Council voted unanimously last week to approve Don Mattingly Way as the new name for the street passing the Bosse Field baseball stadium and into Garvin Park on the city's north side.
Tri-State Hot Stove League vice president Paul Gries tells the Evansville Courier & Press that he's talking with Mattingly about when he might be able to attend a dedication ceremony later this year.
Mattingly is now the Los Angeles Dodgers manager and won the American League MVP award in 1985 with the New York Yankees. He led the Evansville Memorial team to an Indiana high school championship in 1978.
