Randy Johnson Newsbeat
Wednesday, July 29, 2015
“On the bright Sunday afternoon of March 18, 1984, Randy Johnson took the mound for the University of Southern California at Arizona State University’s Packard Stadium.
He was among the most interesting collection of sports figures ever assembled on a college baseball field.
The game featured two players who would break the major leagues’ single-season home run record (one still holds it). One would become an NFL linebacker and head coach, another would eventually be a major-league manager. Then there was a center fielder deemed the best player of all of them, a seeming Hall of Famer in waiting.
Oh, and the umpires included a Phoenix resident who would become the first (and still only) woman to rise to the ranks of Class AAA baseball, one notch below the big leagues.”
Plus ASU’s 4th outfielder, a kid named Mike Devereaux who was the only team-member not to vote the starting left fielder off the team, because he didn’t want to get his starting job that way.

I have no problem with the temporary co-naming of the highway but IMHO not contacting the family beforehand was a pretty big misstep.
