1978 Yankees World Series MVP Bucky Dent has been announced as the keynote speaker for next year’s 13th Annual Claremore Field of Dreams baseball banquet that is going to happen on Monday, January 23rd at 7 p.m. in the Claremore Conference Center in Oklahoma. Tickets to get into the banquet are going for $700 for a table of eight people, and all proceeds will be directly benefitting the Rogers State, Claremore High and Claremore summer baseball programs. Getting Dent to appear for this event is no doubt going to bring in lots of people and fans of his who want to hear what he has to say, which is why it is certainly going to sell out.
The Savannah, Georgia native attended Hialeah High School in Hialeah, Florida and by the age of 21 he was selected to play shortstop for the Chicago White Sox after being the sixth pick in the 1970 MLB draft. However, by 1977 he was traded to the New York Yankees where he played until 1982. During his time on the Yankees, he helped his team get a three-run home run leade which brought the series to a 3-2 game at the 1978 World Series. At the end of his playing career, Dent was also on the roster of the Texas Rangers for a year and of the Kansas City Royals for his final games on the diamond. In 1989 he went on to be the manager of the New York Yankees for a year before leaving the sport for good.
Dent is scheduled to appear in the Claremore Conference Center on January 23rd to be the keynote speaker for next year’s 13th Annual Claremore Field of Dreams baseball banquet. Everyone is looking forward to hearing Dent talk and it should be a very fun and successful event.
