While the summer heat rolls on, take a break and update your calendar for the BRS Museum Induction Ceremony and Dinner, set for Saturday, Sept. 9, at the Nokomis Memorial Park House, which is located near the high school campus.
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.
Milanos Catering will provide the food, as the meal is set to begin at 6 p.m. with the induction ceremony to follow. Tickets are $20 through August 31; after that they will increase to $25 per person. Contact the museum at 563-2495 or email@example.com for more information.
The museum itself will likely be open both before and after the event to allow visitors an opportunity to peruse the museum's collections.
Earlier that day, three vintage base ball teams are scheduled to play a total of three games in the park complex, beginning at 11 a.m. See separate story for more details.
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!
