Scouts to honor former MLB All-Star player Tim Hudson


Special to the
Opelika Observer

The Chattahoochee Council, Boy Scouts of America will recognize former Major League Baseball All-Star player Tim Hudson at its annual Distinguished Citizens Award Dinner. The event will be June 11 at the Bottling Plant Event Center in Opelika.
“It has become tradition that each year we honor local leaders for their contributions to our communities,” said Chattahoochee Council Scout Executive/CEO Juan Osorio.
Hudson is a former MLB All-Star pitcher. During his career, he pitched for the Oakland Athletics, Atlanta Braves and the San Francisco Giants. He attended Chattahoochee Valley Community College and Auburn University. He has recently returned to Auburn University to complete his degree. Hudson and his wife, Kim, started the Hudson Family Foundation to give back to those in need across our communities.
“In both his professional and personal life, Tim served as positive role models for our youth,” Osorio said. “We are proud to present him with this honor as he represents the core values of scouting.”
Proceeds from the dinner go directly to the local scouting program that serves more than 5,000 youth in 15 counties. The Boy Scouts of America instills a strong sense of responsibility and character in today’s youth, and encourages them to become leaders in their communities.
The event is open to the public and sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information on the event or to register to attend, email Osorio at
