KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The honors keep rolling in for Kansas City Royals players with the renaming of a street in McComb, Mississippi, in honor of speedy outfielder Jarrod Dyson.

The McComb City Council voted in December to change the name of Warren Street to Dyson Drive, and Dyson was there on Monday to receive a proclamation about the change.

Sherry Spears, secretary for McComb’s mayor and city manager, says Dyson grew up on Warren Street.

The Kansas City Star (bit.ly/1REKAyi) reports Dyson posted the news on his Instagram account, calling the name change a “blessing from above.”

Dyson also served as the grand marshal of the city’s Christmas parade last month.
