Captains Hot Stove Dinner January 19th
January 9, 2009
The event coincides with the Indians Winter Development Program, which brings the Indians top prospects to Cleveland for off-season training in the Cleveland area. Fans at the Hot Stove dinner will have the opportunity to meet former Captains players and other top Cleveland Indians prospects, as well as members of the Indians Player Development Department. The players will sign autographs and be a part of question and answer session. Among the players who attended last year were former Captains Jeff Stevens, Ryan Goleski, and Kevin Dixon as well as top Tribe farmhand Jordan Brown.
A silent auction of various Captains and Indians memorabilia will also be held during the evening, with 100% of the auction proceeds benefiting Captains Charities, an official 501(c)3 organization that serves as the charitable arm of the baseball club.

The buffet dinner will include cavatelli with Italian sausages, boneless chicken wings, bratwurst with sauerkraut and a gourmet dessert station and ice cream sundae bar.
