Sept 22,2014(ISN) – Prince Albert, SK— We are pleased to announce, taking place on November 8th 2014, the 7th annual Kinsmen/Raider Sportsman Dinner featuring the introduction of the Kinsmen/Raider Male & Female Athletes of the Year and Sportsman of the Year!
This event will again be taking place in the Ches Leach Lounge of the Art Hauser Centre. Joining us as our featured guest this year is former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher, Jack Morris!
There will be incredible silent auction items, and fun games throughout the Ches Leach Lounge to win some great prizes, as well as a live auction. All proceeds raised through this charity fundraiser will benefit the Prince Albert Raiders Education Fund and “Our community’s Greatest Needs”, as per the mantra of the Prince Albert Kinsmen Club. The highlight of this banquet is to honour local athletes and sportsmanship.
Jack Morris is an American former Major League Baseball starting pitcher, who played between 1977 and 1994, winning 254 games throughout his career. Morris was a five-time All-Star (1981, 1984, 1985, 1987, 1991) and played on four World Series Championship teams.
Jack Morris’ career started when he was drafted by the Tigers in the fifth round of the 1976 draft. He played with Detroit Tigers until 1990 then went on to play for other teams such as the Minnesota Twins, Toronto Blue Jays, and Cleveland Indians. Morris then announced his retirement in 1995. He went on to be the color analyst for the Minnesota Twins and was an occasional guest on Detroit Tigers broadcasts, and then joined Sportsnet as a color analyst for the Toronto Blue Jays. Early this year Morris left the radio booth of Sportsnet to work closer to home for Fox Sports.
