For the past 72 years, the Boston Baseball writers have hosted the Annual Baseball Writers Dinner. This event honors current Red Sox players, other MLB players, and people league-wide who have contributed to MLB. This year, The Sports Museum has teamed up with the writers to co-host the dinner, which will be held at The Westin in Copley Place on Thursday, January 20, 2011. The proceeds of the event will go directly to educational programs at The Boston Writers local chapter and The Sports Museum.
This year's dinner is expected to be a big hit; the plan is to combine the strengths of both the writers and the leadership of the Sports Museum to create an even more exciting and fun-filled event. Many of the same traditions of previous dinners will continue, including Autograph Alley, where all kids 16 and under will have the chance to get autographs from their favorite players.
If you would like to attend, individual tickets may be purchased for $150 (a table of 10 is $1,500). Tickets may be purchased by check or credit card.
