Ray Liotta died suddenly at the age of 67-years-old. He gave no signs that his health was bad, and now his legacy is being remembered in a big way.

According to a report from TMZ, Liotta is going to be honored by his home city of Union Township, New Jersey. After all, Liotta was a hometown hero and has many ties to the community.

Liotta grew up in Union Township and graduated from high school there as part of the class of 1973. Mayor Manuel Figueiredo said that the city is looking at a “variety of options” for how to properly honor Ray Liotta.

We’re told, the city is considering naming one of its baseball fields after him, as a nod to his role in “Field of Dreams.” The field they’re looking at is used for youth sports in the area.

Ray Liotta played many iconic roles during his lifetime, including Shoeless Joe Jackson in the classic Field of Dreams movie. Hopefully, however they decide to pay tribute to Ray Liotta will properly honor the legend’s memory.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
