National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee, Dave Winfield, will serve as our special Keynote Speaker along with other local dignitaries. Winfield ranks as the greatest multisport athlete to emerge from the state of Minnesota. Drafted by five teams in five leagues in three major sports, Winfield chose baseball and compiled a first-ballot Hall of Fame career. Winfield jumped straight from college to the major leagues, playing a combined 22  seasons with the San Diego Padres, New York Yankees, California Angels, Toronto Blue Jays, Minnesota Twins, and Cleveland Indians. He appeared in 12 All-Star Games, two World Series, and was the fifth player in the history of baseball to get 3,000 hits and 450 home runs. We look forward to welcoming Winfield to the City of Bellflower as we pay tribute to our local community heroes.

The BRAVO Awards ceremony is funded through sponsorships from area businesses and individuals and represents one of the City of Bellflower’s most prestigious honors. For info on the BRAVO program, call (562) 804-1424 ext. 2267.
