1/6 Woody’s Winter Warm-up

On Jan. 17, former Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood will host the third annual Woody’s Winter Warm-up celebrity mixer at Harry Caray’s tavern Navy Pier in Chicago. Cubs past and present will join celebrities and media personalities as guest bartenders mixing drinks and competing for tips to raise money for the Wood Family Foundation. There also will be a silent auction, open bar, dinner buffet, raffle and DJ. Robert Randolph will be the headliner at the event. Individual tickets are $150 in advance, $175 at the door. Booth sponsorships are available for $1,000, and include four tickets and table-side service.

Would love to attend this event ,but is unlikely I’ll be in the neighborhood, as I’m spending the winter season in the deep South. Want to comment on the passing of Jerry Coleman, a true baseball man. He was a participant in four World Series, and was active as a radio broadcaster with the Padres as recently as this past 2013 season. I listened to him describe a Sirius/Xm Cubs/SanDiego contest in August,and commented on this site at the time about the man. Said it was remarkable he was still working at his craft at age 89.

Jhosk, I am glad you posted as I have been thinking about you back there in the COLD! Lucky you to winter in the Deep South! The whole Cub’s Convention, Kerry Wood’s event, David DeJesus event all sound like so much fun! Hope all is well with you!

Is good to hear from yourself, White. Congrats on being the most prolific poster in 2013. Is very cold even here tonight. Want to qualify something I wrote earlier. Jerry Coleman was part of four teams which were victorious in World Series. He was a Hallof Fame broadcaster and a patriot. He was Marine Corps pilot who flew 120 missions and participated in both WWII and the Korean War. His 70 year baseball career was interrupted twice by those military involvements.

Nice comment on Jerry Coleman, who was a class act and a real gentleman. Always enjoyed seeing him in the press box when Cubs played the Padres. Will miss him
