Major league infielder-turned-broadcaster Harold Reynolds will be the featured speaker at the 54th annual Hot Stove Gala, hosted by the Fresno Grizzlies on Feb. 7 at the Fresno Convention Center.
A two-time American League All-Star and three-time Golden Glove winner, Reynolds played 12 big league seasons with the Seattle Mariners (1983-92), Baltimore Orioles (1993) and California Angels (1994). He led the AL in stolen bases (60) in 1987 and the following season led the league in triples (11).
Alongside Tom Verducci and Joe Buck, Reynolds recently completed his first year on FOX’s top MLB broadcast team. The crew called the 2014 World Series and All-Star Game. He also has spent six years as a lead analyst for the MLB Network and in 2013 won a sports Emmy for outstanding studio analyst.
Hot Stove tickets are $75 per person ($30 for youths 12 and younger) and include a three-course dinner with wine, raffle prizes, a chance to bid for baseball memorabilia items at a silent auction and the opportunity for photographs and autographs with the special guests.
Tickets can be purchased by contacting the Grizzlies’ Whitney Campbell at (559) 320-2547 or firstname.lastname@example.org. All proceeds benefit the 501(c)(3) Grizzlies Community Fund.
The event also includes award presentations to local high school athletes, coaches and teams, as well as a presentation to the Al Radka Award recipient for community service. More speakers will be announced.
