Don Mattingly in Evansville This Weekend for the “Way” and Garvin Park Monument Dedications

A month ago I wrote a blog about the name change coming for the street running from N. Main St. into Garvin Park.  Bosse Field's official address changes, too.  Bosse Field is now located at 23 Don Mattingly Way.  That was the number on Don's New York Yankees uniform.  Additionally, Garvin Park's address is now 45 Don Mattingly Way.  This Saturday, Don Mattingly himself will be in Evansville for the dedication of the street name change and a monument placed inside Garvin Park in his honor.
