Spectrum Field • Clearwater, FL
Dinner at the Field
On behalf of the staff of the Ted Williams Museum & Hitters Hall of Fame, thank you for supporting our annual Inductions at Tropicana Field. Our 2018 event is hosted by Gold Glove outfielder Kevin Kiermaier. Over the past few years, your attendance has allowed the Ted Williams Foundation to support many local charities including Veterans, Animal Rescue Shelters, Children Programs and scholarships in the Tampa Bay area.
We are proud to announce our 26th Annual Induction Ceremony at a new venue, Spectrum Field in Clearwater. The event will be held Saturday February 10th, at 6:15pm. This year’s event includes a free autograph session, an opportunity for early event entry, a charity auction and a chance to witness baseball history! There will be a variety of foods being served to you from neighborhood restaurants, a cash bar at the famous TIKI Hut in the outfield, and open seating on the concourse and in the stands. Enjoy the ceremony from a seat of your choice in the open air ball park while the ceremony takes place down the third base foul line. The night will conclude with a firework show to celebrate the induction of some of baseball’s greatest players. With the support you have given over the past years, we want you to be the first to learn of our inductees and player signings at this year’s ceremony.
