Philadelphia Phillies coach Larry Bowa has been announced as the keynote speaker for this fall’s Third Annual Thanks for Giving Luncheon that’s happening at Spooky Nook Sports on November 18 in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania. The luncheon raises funds to benefit the Janus School, which is a K-12 educational institute that serves students and teachers with learning differences. Tickets to get into the even cost $90 per person and may be purchased in advance through the school’s website or by calling their point of contact, Nicholas Chapman,
The Sacremento, California native is the son of a former minor league player and coach, so it’s not hard to see how he got into the sport himself. While Bowa played baseball, he took the road less traveled and did not enter the MLB Draft, but instead was given a chance by the Philadelphia Phillies after a scout observed his talent on a winter league team. He made his MLB debut in 1970 and played for the Phillies for 11 years before going to the Chicago Cubs for three, and wrapped up his playing career in 1985 with the New York Mets. Over the course of his career Bowa has also been a manager and coach for several teams including the San Diego Padres, New York Yankees, and Los Angeles Dodgers. As of 2014, he went back to Philadelphia to coach the Phillies once again.
Bowa will be speaking at the Third Annual Thanks for Giving Luncheon that will happen in Mount Joy, PA to benefit the Janus School as well as its students and faculty. It’s set tol happen on November 18, and is expected to be a sell-out event.
