TORONTO (AP) - Carlos Delgado said he's ``completely honored and flattered'' that the Toronto Blue Jays are adding him to their Level of Excellence.
The Puerto Rican slugger, who hit 473 home runs in his 17 year career, will become the 10th person to have his name added to the facade inside Rogers Centre, in a ceremony before Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Past recipients of the award include former AL MVP George Bell, 1993 World Series star Joe Carter and Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar.
Delgado played parts of 12 seasons with the Blue Jays before signing as a free agent with the Florida Marlins in 2005. He remains Toronto's franchise leader in more than 10 offensive categories, including home runs, RBIs, doubles, runs and intentional walks.
