Clarinda A’s will host the 38th Annual Baseball Hall of Fame Banquet Saturday, November 17, 2012 at Clarinda Academy Activities Center. This is a change of date from the past few years
Prices will remain the same as in the past, advance student tickets are $16 and adult, $20. At the door they will be $20 & $25. Each ticket is good for one autograph from each visiting celebrity, dinner and participation in the silent auction. Extra autographs will be $20. All proceeds from this event go into the A’s operating budget.
National Hall of Fame player Ozzie Smith and Von Hayes, both of whom played for the A’s, will be here to participate in the autograph session as well as the Q&A to close the evening. A’s board is waiting to hear from several other former A’s who are or have been in the major leagues regarding their attendance.
Items for the silent auction have started coming in with two signed jerseys, one from Buddy Black, manager of the San Diego Padres and John Kruk, former Philadelphia Phillies, now a sports media personality, among the early arrivals. Black was a pitcher for the A’s in 1977 and 78.

The 37th annual Clarinda A's Baseball Hall of Fame Banquet may have been the first without the late Merl Eberly, the longtime manager and general manager of the team, but there may never be another one where he wasn't honored more than he was Saturday evening at the Clarinda Academy Activity Center.
