Dirk Nowitzki to attend parade at home
By Marc Stein
The second parade of the month for Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki will take place Tuesday in his hometown of Wurzburg in Bavaria.
Nowitzki flew home over the weekend after his first-pitch duties at Friday night's Texas Rangers game and will be honored by his countrymen in a city hall ceremony and afternoon procession through the city.
He'll also meet the German press for the first time since leading the Mavericks to the franchise's first championship, which was followed by an emotional parade through downtown Dallas and the celebration of Nowitzki's 33rd birthday on June 19.
