Born in 2015, the “Heart Stove” event follows the same format as traditional “hot stove” events that warm New England baseball fans’ souls during the cold winter months. The one-hour moderated panel discussion at Founders Hall will be followed by a question & answer session with audience members. Each ticket includes admission to the pre-event cocktail reception with food and beverages.
The event will also celebrate the Worcester Bravehearts' connection to Saint John's High School. In just four seasons, ten Saint John’s alumni have either player or coached for the Worcester Bravehearts. A special on-stage presentation at 6:30 will focus on the unique relationship between the school and the team while introducing Saint John's alumni who will join the Bravehearts in 2018.
Donations at the event will benefit the Worcester County Food Bank, spearheaded by Saint John's High School's Thanksgiving Food Drive. The Worcester Bravehearts will donate one turkey to the Worcester County Food Bank for every ten tickets purchased. Guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donate as well.
