Mr. Green will be dedicating the new "Mean Joe" Green Community Football Field.

The ceremony will be held Saturday morning at 10 a.m. at the intersection of East Avenue H and South 34th Street. Others in attendance will include Mayor Danny Dunn, Interim City Manager Brynn Meyers, and City Council members.

In case you missed our story a while back about Mr. Green being presented with the Hometown Hall of Famer Plaque, you can see it here.

Mr. Green is an alum of Temple's Dunbar High School, Class of 65.

"We are proud to formally dedicate this field to honor Mr. Greene and to inspire new generations of athletes, right here in Temple, TX," Temple Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Beavers said. "We would also like to thank our community partners like Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages for their generous donation of the new electronic scoreboard installed at the field, as well as Hilton Garden Inn in Temple for providing overnight accommodations for our out of town guests."
