Former Padres closer Trevor Hoffman will be honored with his own street outside of Petco Park, San Diego's City Council announced Monday.

Trevor Hoffman Way will run a length of Park Blvd. between Imperial Ave and Tony Gwynn Drive. The name change will happen Friday, September 28th before the final home stand of the 2018 Padres season.

Trevor Hoffman was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in July of this year and a statue commemorating the player was unveiled at Petco Park on August 18th.

"As one of the best closers in baseball history and a legendary member of the Padres, we couldn't be more thrilled to honor Trevor Hoffman for his contributions to the game, his entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame, and the joy he has given so many San Diego fans," Mayor Kevin Faulconer said of the street change.
