NEWS Association CONTINUED League Baseball player Andre Dawson will share about his baseball career, stories about players and coaches he has worked with, teamwork and leadership, and how he got into the funeral business during presentation.

Dawson’s accolades include Rookie of the Year, Gold Glove (x8), Silver Slugger (x4), All-Star (x8), and MVP. After a decade of stardom with the Montreal Expos, he signed with the Chicago Cubs where he hit his incredible 20-year career with the Florida Marlins. Andre retired in 1996 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2010. He has since invested his career earnings, and commitment into restoring a funeral home in the neighborhood where he grew up and now owns and operates Paradise Memorial Funeral Home in Miami, FL.
