Keep your calendars open for the next BRS Museum Honorees’ Dinner, coming Saturday, Sept. 9. While a few final items are still in the works, keep watching this space and The Bullpen in the coming weeks for more information.
Chosen as new honorees are former major leaguers Gary Gaetti, Jason Isringhausen and Kirk Rueter, along with minor leaguer Mick Fieldbinder; long-time scout Roger Kratochvil and long-time WSMI radio announcer Terry Todt.
Preliminary plans include a meal and induction ceremony, something similar to the last such event, which was held in late 2011 at the Nokomis Memorial Park House. With an honoree roll of more than 100 people, the BRS Museum and its board of directors are pleased to be able to expand the list to additional central Illinoisans who have contributed significantly to the game of baseball!
