It’s Hot Stove League, Kitsap style.
We’re be talking baseball Wednesday (Dec. 5) at The Arena Sports Bar and Grille in east Bremerton (41111 Wheaton Way).
The Kitsap Athletic Roundtable meeting will feature M’s announcer and West Coast League president Ken Wilson, Kitsap minor leaguers Drew Vettleson and Jared Prince and BlueJackets/Olympic College coach Ryan Parker. Others have also been invited.
KAR members get in for $5; non-members $10. Order off the menu.
Social hour at 6 p.m., program around 7.
Here’s my story on Vettleson that appeared in today’s paper. The Central Kitsap grad just finished his second season in the Tampa Bay Rays organization.
Look for something on Prince later this week. I had a nice chat with the former North Kitsap star, who played at Double A Frisco, Texas in 2012.
Vettleson and Prince were both Kitsap Sun Male Athletes of the Year their senior years in high school.
Hope to see you at he meeting.
KAR memberships are just $25. All money goes to youth and amateur athletics in the region.
The KAR’s annual Kitsap Sports Hall of Fame banquet is coming up — Jan. 12 at Kiana Lodge in Poulsbo. The inductees were announced on Sunday. Here’s the lowdown on who’s going to be honored. And Sam Fitz is the recipient of the Rex Brown Award, not Red Brown Award, as I wrote in the paper. Sorry about that.
