Speaker Series - "The Rundown with Steve Garvey" - Featuring Garvey, Davis and Wills on Jackie Robinson Day

You might want to head to Palm Desert on Jackie Robinson Day (Tuesday, April 15th) for this event.  Starting in a few weeks, Tommy Bahama Restaurant and Bar in Palm Desert will hold a regular Speaker Series on the great game of Baseball hosted by Steve Garvey.

It is called "The Rundown with Steve Garvey", and its first event will feature Garvey having a Q&A with former Dodgers Maury Wills and Tommy Davis.  They will be speaking about Baseball, the Dodgers and Jackie Robinson.  It promises to be a fun and enlightening experience.  Check out the flyer below.  BTW, the event is in benefit of the Baseball Assistance Team (BAT) - an organization committed to helping ex-ballplayers in need, and 10% of all retail sales at Tommy Bahama will go to BAT on that day.

Only 100 tickets are available and they are priced at $195.00 each.  Call here (760-836-0188) to purchase. 

Per a press release:
Guests will meet Steve, Tommy and Maury, take pictures with them (bring your camera!), and receive a Rawlings baseball autographed by all three of these baseball greats! Afterwards, Steve will host a fun and informative Q&A session where Tommy and Maury will take questions from the audience about their lives in baseball, the upcoming MLB season, and of course the legendary Jackie Robinson.
Also, a second Speaker Series event has just been confirmed for May 15.  That will feature Steve Garvey speaking with Hall of Fame Catcher Johnny Bench.  I'll provide a link and more information when available.
