In years gone by, most major league towns had a “Baseball Writer’s Dinner” but today there are less than a handful left– and St. Louis is lucky to have one. Each years, the Baseball Writers and others work hard to produce an amazing evening for the fans of St, Louis. The beat writers, including Rob Rains ; as well as other presenters hand out awards to players, managers, and baseball personnel. They have scholarships, and special awards outside of baseball.
You won’t want to miss this magical night.
