Dodgers’ Orel Hershiser to Receive Honor Fit For a Star

Former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Orel Hershiser is set to be honored in one of the most iconic spots in Los Angeles: the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Hershiser was announced Monday as part of the Walk of Fame Class of 2025, where he will join legends in sports and entertainment including Prince, Green Day, Jane Fonda, David Beckham, Lauren Graham, and Bill Nye the Science Guy.

Hershiser and Beckham are the two athletes receiving stars. Hershiser is one 36 honorees who receive a star on the Walk of Fame next year.

Hershiser pitched in MLB for 17 years from 1983-2000, spending the majority of his career with the Dodgers. Drafted by the Dodgers in 1979, Hershiser made his MLB debut in 1983 for the team, where he spent 11 years. He later played for Cleveland, the San Francisco Giants, and New York Mets before returning to the Dodgers in 2000.

During his playing career, Hershiser was a three-time All-Star and a National League Cy Young award winner. He had the best year of his career in 1988, winning the Cy Young, the World Series, World Series MVP, a Gold Glove award, and finishing the year as the NL Wins Leader.

Following his career, Hershiser went on to become a broadcaster, working for ABC and ESPN before joining SportsNet LA in 2014.
