LANSING, Mich. (WILX) -- The Lansing Lugnuts will honor one of the capitol city's most famous faces this summer.

A tribute night will be held at Cooley Law School Stadium on July 20th for Burt Reynolds.

The Lugnuts made the announcement by showing off special jerseys for the night on Twitter Wednesday.

The team will wear black colored "Smokey and the Bandit" themed jerseys.
