The Potomac Nationals will hold their 17th annual Hot Stove Banquet Sunday, Jan. 29, at the Hyatt Fairfax at Fair Lakes.
Newly hired manager Brian Rupp will be introduced and speak at the event. Also a keynote speaker will be announced at a later date.
Last year, Nationals assistant general manager Bryan Minniti and director of player development Doug Harris spoke and went over the state of the system and looked towards the future. There could also be appearances by players either past or present.
The banquet is open to the public. Potomac Nationals booster club gets a discounted rate of $40. Everyone gets in for $45. Kids 12 and under are $20.
The banquet includes a cocktail hour, a full plated meal, the complete program of entertainment, meet and greet with the new manager and a silent auction that will benefit the Prince William County public education fund. This fund helps bring kids to the ballpark each year and aids other important projects.
Tickets can only be purchased prior to the event; no payments will be taken at the door. Call 703-590-2311, extension 212 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
