Mayor Pro Tem Pat Shelton on Tuesday night presented Thomasville native Wil Myers, the 2013 American League Rookie of the Year, with the Key to the City.

"It’s just a cool thing to do," Myers said. "Just to be from here and receive an award like this is pretty cool."  

Myers’ mother, Pam, accompanied him. 

Tuesday night marked Myers’ second appearance in the Chair City since his rookie season in Major League Baseball ended. 

Myers attended a fundraiser in December at the Thomasville Woman’s Club and helped raise approximately $8,600 for Communities In Schools of Thomasville.
