I don’t know about you, but every year around Baseball Hall of Fame induction time, I get a little giddy. No matter who is going into the Hall of Fame any given year, I’m excited to hear some speeches and see some grown men tear up a little. Year after year, I yearn to make that trip to Cooperstown and take in an enshrinment in person but alas, it has yet to be in the cards. There’ll be a year where I make it up for an induction, but in the mean time, there’s an event that might just fill that void.
The Green Diamond Gallery in Montgomery is hosting the “2010 Hall of Fame Lunch”, featuring the ENTIRE 2010 Baseball Hall of Fame inductee class – Andre Dawson, Whitey Herzog and Doug Harvey. WOW. Not sure about you, but that’s right up our alley. Here’s a the rundown:
DATE: August 12, 2010
TIME: 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
WHERE: Montgomery Inn
COST: $150 per person, $1,500 per table (10 seats)

984-4192? Ah, we see what you did there!!
This is a great chance to listen to all three inductees speak as well as ask them a few questions during a 15-20 minute Q&A session.
Proceeds from the event will help launch the Character and Courage Foundation. The Character and Courage Foundation enriches, through baseball, the lives of youth who are physically handicapped, diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses, or living in impoverished areas.

After the all the Reds Hall of Fame excitement recently, I’m totally up for some more baseball greats to roll into town.
