The Danbury Westerners of the New England Collegiate Baseball League will be hosting their Hot Stove Breakfast on Nov. 16 from 8 a.m. to noon at Two Steps Downtown Grille on Ives Street in Danbury.
Featured speakers will include Westerners Chief Operating Officer Michael Malone, Chicago Cubs Major League Scout Billy Blitzer, Marist College baseball coach Chris Tracz, former Westerner and current Seattle Mariners farmhand Zach Shank and Ron Mentus of RLM Athletics.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased beginning on Oct. 21 by contacting Westerners Director of Baseball Operations Jack Deering at 203-984-0877 or JWDeering@snet.net.
This event had originally been scheduled for this past Feb. 9 – and tickets were sold out – but it had to be cancelled because of a snow storm that dumped two feet of snow on the area.
Each summer, the Westerners play their home games at Rogers Park in Danbury. Check out their website at DanburyWesterners.com.
