Hometown star athlete shares the wealth



On Friday, July 6, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, Jr. (standing at center in left photo, with basketball in right photo) shared his success with his old neighborhood by donating a new basketball court to Martin Luther King, Jr. Park in South Minneapolis. Parents and youth were invited to the court’s unveiling, which included food, beverages and ice cream compliments of Larry, Jr. and visits from Minnesota Lynx stars Monica Wright and Rebekkah Brunson.
