LETHBRIDGE: Former Toronto Blue Jays second baseman and hall
of famer Roberto Alomar is coming to Lethbridge in the new year.
Alomar, who won a pair of World Series titles with the Jays in 1992 and 1993,
will be the special guest for the inaugural Legends of Sports Gala on February
22nd. He will also be doing a meet and greet at Avison Young, as they're supporting the event.
Project Manager Chelsea Mereska talks about the major aim of the new event,
"We were looking to make sure baseball was still on everyone's mind in the
off-season , because once the World Series is over, or even before that once
Toronto's finished playing, baseball just kind of leaves everyone's mind when
hockey starts, so we just want to keep the baseball atmosphere around in the
All money raised from the gala will go towards travel costs, billeting and
athletic equipment for the Lethbridge Bulls.
Tickets go on sale December 2nd at Spitz Stadium.
