Jamie Farr Returns to Toledo This Weekend

(Toledo, OH) One of Toledo's favorite sons returns to the Glass City this weekend. 

The North Toledo park that bears his name will welcome Jamie Farr to a historic marker dedication in his honor tomorrow at 11 a.m. 

The 83-year old actor put Toledo and the Mud Hens on the map with his cross-dressing character Corporal Max Klinger on the long-running hit TV show "MASH." 

The Mud Hens will honor Farr for his community contributions during tonight's game at Fifth Third Field, where he'll be inducted into a Celebrity Hall of Fame and the first 2,000 baseball fans will receive a reissue of the Corporal Klinger bobblehead. This weekend marks the 45th anniversary of MASH. 

Farr's second homecoming happens in October when he stars at the Stranahan Theater in a traveling stage production of the best-selling book "Tuesdays with Morrie."
