Williamsport Crosscutters Announce 6th Annual Hot Stove Dinner


The Williamsport Crosscutters have announced the 6th annual Hot Stove Dinner will be on January 23, 2012.  Special guest speakers include former Phillie and current Crosscutters Manager Andy Tracy, Phillies General Manager Ruben Amaro, Jr, Tom McCarthy, Ed Wade, Steve Noworyta, and Dave Bresnahan.  The Phillie Phanactic will also be there.

A portion of the proceeds go to Andrew’s Special Kids Foundation.  According to the Crosscutters website, the foundation’s mission is to “Provide special needs children with every opportunity in life which will enable them to reach their full potential by providing them with adaptive equipment, special education opportunities, safety equipment, therapies and financial assistance for out of state travel.”

At the end of the evening, attendees can lineup and get autographs from the guest speakers.  I’m really looking forward to getting Ruben Amaro, Jr’s signature on my bat.  In previous years the guests have been up on a stage while signing autographs.  Given that a portion of the proceeds go to the Andrew’s Special Kids Foundation, I would hope that the guests are down on a lower level this time.  I’m sure they would come down, but it would be easier if they were on floor level.

Here are some of the past Hot Stoves I’ve attended:
