Old Timers Banquet to Feature Auction Items

The Old Timers Baseball Association of Nashville will be holding their 76th annual banquet on Thursday, January 23, 2014. The event will begin at 6:30 PM but beginning at 5:30 PM a silent auction will take place in the reception area. A few items will be auctioned live during the banquet.

Franklin American Mortgage Company is the main sponsor for the banquet to be held at the Millennium Maxwell House, 2025 Rosa L Parks Boulevard.

Board member Morgan Butler has done an awesome job in accumulating desirable items for the 2014 auction. Here’s a partial listing of the items that will be auctioned:

The sale of auction items goes towards a fund to provide assistance to area baseball programs, and gives one more reason for baseball fans to attend the banquet. Tickets are available from any Old Timers board member, at Nashville Sporting Goods, Hit After Hit, and at the Nashville Sounds office.

The banquet will feature former New York Yankees second baseman and 1960 World Series MVP Bobby Richardson. More information can be found at http://www.otbaseball.com.
