Former NL MVP George Foster to Headline Amsterdam Hot Stove & Hall of Fame Dinner

Two-time World Series champ & former NL MVP George Foster will be the guest speaker at the Amsterdam Hot Stove and Hall of Fame Dinner.

AMSTERDAM, N.Y. -- The Amsterdam Mohawks announced last week that former National League MVP and five-time All-Star, George Foster, will headline the team’s 11th annual Hot Stove and Hall of Fame Dinner, which will be held on February 3.

Foster played 18 seasons in the majors, 11 of which came with the Cincinnati Reds during the 1970s and early ‘80s. The slugging left fielder was chosen to four straight MLB All-Star Games from 1976-79, and again in 1981, as one of the forces behind Cincinnati’s “Big Red Machine.” After helping the Reds win the 1975 and 1976 World Series, he was named the NL’s Most Valuable Player in 1977, when he mashed a league-high 52 home runs with 149 RBIs and 124 runs scored.

A third-round pick by San Francisco in the 1968 January Free Agent Amateur Draft, Foster debuted with the Giants in 1969 and finished his career with the New York Mets and Chicago White Sox. Throughout his 18-year pro career, the Tuscaloosa, Alabama, native amassed 1,925 hits, 1,239 RBIs and 348 home runs. The Reds inducted him into the team’s Hall of Fame in 2003 as one of the great power hitters in franchise history.

The 11th annual Amsterdam Mohawks Hot Stove and Hall of Fame Dinner will be hosted on Saturday, February 3, at the St. Mary’s Institute in Amsterdam. More details, including ticket information and Hall of Fame inductees, will be announced in the near future.
