Maury Wills to be honored by alma mater

That would be Cardozo High School in Washington D.C., which plans to name its baseball field after him in a ceremony later this month. Maury told me recently — and I find this absolutely mind-boggling — that he is one of only two major-league players ever to come out of our nation’s capital. The other is current Giants infielder Emmanuel Burriss, a first-round pick in the 2006 amateur draft. Anyway, this is a great honor for one of my favorite people in the Dodgers organization.
