Dawson to be honored at Wrigley on Aug. 30
CHICAGO -- The Cubs will honor new Hall of Famer Andre Dawson on Aug. 30 at Wrigley Field.
Dawson, who won the National League Most Valuable Player award in 1987 with the Cubs, was inducted into Cooperstown last month. He will receive a special gift during an on-field ceremony prior to the Cubs' game against the Pirates.
In addition, Mayor Richard Daley has officially proclaimed Aug. 30 as "Andre Dawson Day" in Chicago. The first 10,000 fans entering the ballpark for the game will receive commemorative caps, compliments of the Cubs and The PrivateBank.
