Staub, Winfield to be honored at LFY Dinner

Event will be held Tuesday, Nov. 13 at the New York Marriott Marquis in NYC
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association (MLBPAA) is pleased to announce that Rusty Staub and Hall of Famer Dave Winfield will be honored with the 2012 Lifetime Achievement Awards at the 13th Annual Legends for Youth Dinner in New York City.

The event, which will take place Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012, at the New York Marriott Marquis, aims to recognize former Major League players for their accomplishments on the diamond coupled with their off-the-field contributions to communities across the nation.

Winfield, inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001, was a seven-time Gold Glove winner and six-time Silver Slugger throughout his 22-year career. He was awarded the Branch Rickey Award in 1992 and the Babe Ruth Award and Roberto Clemente Award in 1994. Winfield played for the San Diego Padres, the New York Yankees, Minnesota Twins, California Angels, Toronto Blue Jays and Cleveland Indians.

The second honoree, Staub, was signed by the Houston Colt .45s as an amateur free agent in 1961. After six seasons in Houston, he went on to play for the Montreal Expos, New York Mets, Detroit Tigers and Texas Rangers. A versatile player, Staub rotated between playing first base and the outfield where he had a career-average fielding percentage of .980. Throughout 23 years playing in the Major Leagues, he's made six All-Star appearances and was the only Major League player to have 500 hits with four different teams. Staub founded the Legends for Youth Dinner.

MLBPAA allocates proceeds from the dinner to the Legends for Youth Baseball Clinic series. The Legends for Youth program is a series of free baseball clinics designed to provide children with positive role models, teach young players baseball fundamentals and promote the game of baseball. Former players, such as George Foster, Bobby Grich, Ferguson Jenkins, Phil Niekro, Brooks Robinson, Harmon Killebrew, Orlando Cepeda and Tom Seaver, have participated in past clinics.

The Brooks Robinson Community Service Award and the Heart and Hustle Award will be presented at the Legends for Youth Dinner, as well.
