Former Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Ron Cey has been named the keynote speaker at the Yakima Pepsi Beetles Century Club Baseball Banquet on May 29 at the Red Lion Hotel in town. Tickets will be available for purchase and will include a raffle for a 2006 Volkswagen Beetle and several silent and oral auctions happening too. It is expected to be a big hit and a fun time for all of the baseball fans who choose to attend.
The Tacoma native attended Washington State University for two years before entering the 1968 MLB Draft where he was picked up by the Los Angeles Dodgers and played with the team for 11 years. After that he did three years with the Chicago Cubs and then one more year with the Oakland Athletics before retiring from the sport in 1987. His nickname is “The Penguin” due to the way that he runs in a slow and addling fashion, but that didn’t stop him from having 316 career homeruns and 1,139 runs batted in.
Cey will be one of the main speakers at the Yamika Pepsi Beetles Century Club Baseball Banquet later this month, and it will be a good opportunity for the organization to raise some funds for their cause. A lot of the locals who have lived in the area for some time will remember Cey from his hay day, and that should make it an extra special event for them.
