Former NL MVP George Foster was the keynote speaker for the Amsterdam Baseball/Mohawks Baseball Hall of Fame. Four new inductees were honored at this year’s dinner event that happened on February 3rd at St. Mary’s Institute and over 350 guests attended, making the function bigger than ever. Tickets to get into the dinner were only $45 per person and included a cocktail hour from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., a full dinner and an autograph with the famous George Foster. Children’s entrance tickets were only $20, and also a table of 10 was slightly bundled at a lower price of $400 for all the seats. It was a spectacular event and one that all of the attendees enjoyed being at and hearing from one of baseball’s finest retired players.
The Tuscaloosa, Alabama native started playing baseball at a very young age and eventually was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the third round of the 1968 Major League Baseball draft. He stayed with the Giants for two years before being traded to the Cincinnati Reds, where he was on their roster for an entire decade. Foster then went to play for the New York Mets for four years and did a very brief stint with the Chicago White Sox before retiring in 1986. In all the years of his career, Foster was a five-time All-Star player, a two-time World Series Champion and a Silver Slugger Award.
