Colby ReedyAs we bid farewell to the 2018 MLB season diehard baseball fan and Cannery Seafood of the Pacific and El Cholo restaurants owner Ron Salisbury is in the on-deck circle, preparing for his series of dinners with baseball greats that takes the field on November 6th.

The 15th annual Hot Stove League Dinner Series, named for the long winter months of the offseason when baseball fans gather around hot stoves to discuss their favorite teams and players, is being co-sponsored by Cannery Seafood of the Pacific and Angels Chairman Dennis Kuhl. The unique four-part dinner series, which runs through February 2019, allows fans to get their baseball fix during the offseason. Each dinner includes a cocktail meet-and-greet with a special guest speaker, an intimate three-course dinner with wine pairings, followed by the guest speaker sharing his or her favorite baseball stories and life experiences. Angels Chairman Dennis Kuhl is the MC.

Leading off this year’s series will be sportswriter Jane Leavy on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Chicago Cubs Manager Joe Maddon will bat second on Thursday, Dec. 6, followed by former Manager Dusty Baker on Tuesday, Jan. 8th. Batting cleanup and closing the season will be former player and broadcaster Ron Fairly on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019.

Ron Salisbury estimates that the Hot Stove dinners have raised more than $180,000 to benefit the Angels Baseball Foundation’s youth programs.

Colby Reedy, the Associate General Manager at The Cannery, joins us with all the details.
