Roberto Alomar to attend National Teams Banquet

Friday, January 6, 2012

OTTAWA-Baseball Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar will be on hand January 14th at the Renaissance Toronto Downtown when Baseball Canada holds its annual National Teams Awards Banquet and Fundraiser.

Arguably the best Toronto Blue Jay of all-time, Alomar was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York on July 24th, 2011. Later in July, the ten-time Gold Glove Award winner became the first player in Blue Jays history to have his jersey retired as the club lifted his famous #12 into the rafters at Rogers Centre.

The relationship between Baseball Canada and the Toronto Blue Jays continues to flourish as Alomar will be joined at the banquet by Blue Jays President and CEO Paul Beeston, Senior Vice-President Baseball Operations and General Manager Alex Anthopoulos, Senior Vice President Business Operations Stephen Brooks and former World Series Champion Duane Ward.

A host of other Blue Jays Front Office members and alumni will be amongst the distinguished guests as Baseball Canada celebrates another fine year of Canadian baseball.
