Mayfair High School Alum Justin Turner Continues to Shine


Justin Turner, a Mayfair High School alum and Lakewood Youth Hall of Fame Baseball Player of the Year in 2003, is making a big impact in post-season play for the Dodgers this fall, just as he did all year long.

Turner, one of Lakewood’s hometown sports heroes, hit a towering two-run home run in the sixth inning to put the Dodgers ahead for good last night in their 3 to 1 victory over the Houston Astros. (Photo: Kingsport Times-News.)

Lakewood was named Sportstown USA by Sports Illustrated magazine in 2004 for the city’s great recreational assets and sports programs and for the many athletes who have developed here.

In a recent interview with Justin Turner, when asked where he would take people on a tour of his hometown, the Dodger third baseman said he would show them the parks of Lakewood.
