1/7/10 Piniella to be honored
Lou Piniella will be among those receiving the Thurman Munson Award on Feb. 2 at the 30th annual benefit dinner to remember the Yankees catcher. Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain and former Mets outfielder Darryl Strawberry also will be honored at the event, which raises money to benefit AHRC-New York City Foundation. Piniella, a previous Munson recipient, will receive the “Legend Award” for his long and meritorious service to baseball.
