Since 2005, the Charleston RiverDogs organization has held an off-season Hot Stove Banquet & Auction featuring some of the biggest names in baseball. The 13th edition of the event will be no different as Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Glavine will be this year’s featured speaker.
The banquet will be held on Friday, January 27th at the Charleston Marriott's Crystal Ballroom. During the event, the former Atlanta Braves star will share behind-the-scenes stories, answer questions, and pose for pictures with attendees.
It will begin at 6 pm and tickets are $75 per person (tables of eight or ten with preferred seating are $700 and $750 respectively). Proceeds from the Hot Stove Banquet benefit The Citadel, College of Charleston and Charleston Southern baseball scholarship funds.
Here are some of Glavine's career highlights:
