On Thursday, the former major league player was honored for all of his work.

The Phenix City native was praised during a floor ceremony in the State’s capital for his athletic achievements and significant contributions to the state.

“Yea know where I came from, to have a big league career as long as I did, I definitely had some help from the Good Lord above so having said that, I just feel like I have a duty to go out there and try to do good with the platforms he’s blessed me with and just give back, do as much as I can within the community,” Hudson said.

Hudson played for three different teams during his 16-year major league career.
