Hot Stove itinerary for tonight

Without a doubt, the most frequent non-Bryce Harper, non-stadium lease related question we have heard in our office over the the last month is “What is Hot Stove?”  So, for those who are attending tonight’s event and those who are curious as to what the Hot Stove is all about, tonight’s itinerary is below.

Tickets for the event, which will be held at the Holiday Inn Convention Center on Electronics Parkway,  are still available: $55 for adults, $25 for children 12 & younger, or $500 for a table of ten.  You can call our ticket office at 474-7833 or stop by the ballpark to pick up tickets.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Syracuse Chiefs Charitable Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) corporation which implements programs to improve the health and educational opportunities of families and youth in the Central New York community and provides financial assistance to other 501(c)(3) organizations with similar purposes.

Doors open, cocktail hour and silent auction begin

We’ve got some great items up for bid this year including game-worn equipment, autographed baseballs, bobbleheads, collectible photos, and even a couple of autographed basketballs.

Also during the cocktail hour fans will have the chance to purchase numbered “raffle bats” for a chance to win one of 12 great prizes, including baseballs autographed by Bryce Harper, Stephen Strasburg, and Ryan Zimmerman.  The bats will be $5 each and even if your number isn’t called you’ll still end up with a nice souvenir from the evening.

Excellent news to see that Washington has earned the top ranking for their minor league system. How do you see that benefitting the Chiefs? Losing Peacock and Milone really hurts the AAA team, in my opinion, and if we don’t see Harper this year what other top prospects will take up residence here?
