Royals outfielder gets street named after him after World Series win

BY foxsports • January 14, 2016

Kansas City Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson is receiving quite an honor.

The World Series champion will have a street named after him in his hometown of McComb, Mississippi. The street will be changed from Warren Street to Dyson Drive.

Dyson shared the news by posting a photo of the clipping from the local newspaper:

This has to be surreal for Dyson. A 50th-round pick by the Royals in 2006, Dyson has spent parts of six seasons in the bigs. He is a career .255 hitter with 146 stolen bases. He has been a component of the Royals’ recent success, which includes consecutive trips to the World Series and one championship.
