Union County Baseball Association Cancels 2021 “Hot Stove” Awards Dinner

UNION COUNTY, NJ – The Union County Baseball Association (UCBA) has announced the cancellation of its annual Hot Stove League Awards Dinner due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We held out hope that the 85th Union County Hot Stove League Dinner could be held as usual in February 2021,” said Jim Iozzi, UCBA president. “But, out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to cancel this year’s event.”

Since the first Union County “Hot Stove” event in 1937, the Union County Baseball Association has aimed to provide an outstanding program for the many baseball enthusiasts who attend the awards dinner each year. The honorees and guest speakers at the 2020 gathering included former New York Mets outfielder Mookie Wilson, and the players and coaches of the Elmora Troopers baseball team, the 2019 Mid-Atlantic champions who finished in the top four at the 2019 Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.

Sponsored by the Union County Baseball Association, in cooperation with the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Department of Parks and Recreation, the Hot Stove League awards dinner is the primary annual fund-raising effort for the Union County Youth Baseball Leagues. The summer and fall leagues have given more than 45,000 boys and girls an opportunity to participate in an organized baseball program over the past 70-plus years.
