Foley’s Event Canceled

Sorry for the late notice, but the Irish baseball fund raiser at Foley’s tonight has been canceled. Apparently, Jeff Nelson could not get into town in time due to his flight being grounded.

Hopefully the event will be re-scheduled. In the meantime, if you’re planning to go to Foley’s, you’ll still have a great time enjoying the food, beer, and banter — all the while immersed in an astounding array of baseball memorabilia trumped only by a hall in Cooperstown.


Meet Jim Duquette Tonight at Foley’s

Former Mets GM Jim Duquette and former Yankees reliever Jeff Nelson (as well as yours truly) will be at Foley’s in Manhattan (18 W 33rd St, across the street from the Empire State Building) TONIGHT beginning at 7 PM for a night to raise funds for baseball programs in Ireland. Money raised will go to travel and shipping expenses for baseball clinics in Ireland.

A group of baseball scouts and players – known as the Baseball Miracles group – will be traveling to Ireland in to hold clinics in Limerick and Dublin on January 18 and 19. As part of the clinics, over 1,000 lbs. of donated baseball equipment will be shipped to kids in Ireland.
