Syracuse Chiefs' Hot Stove Dinner, as deal with Mets is imminent

By the time this year's Hot Stove Dinner happens on Friday, the Syracuse Chiefs expect to be officially owned by the NY Mets.

All the steps to allow the Syracuse Chiefs baseball team to be bought by the N.Y. Mets have been taken, and it's expected the actual papers will be signed soon, so that when the Hot Stove Dinner happens on Friday, the team should officially be owned by the Mets baseball organization.

Jason Smorol, the Chiefs' General Manager, says this year's Hot Stove Dinner is earlier than usual because it will be the last at the OnCenter before the complex shuts down to convert for the four month long U.S. Bowling Congress championship tournament.

NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR because of the OnCenter logistics for the switch-over to bowling preps. Smorol says tickets are available (through the beginning of the week) here.

Several Mets superstars will be in Syracuse to speak at the event. There will also be auction items (you can bid through the website without going to the OnCenter!).

Doors open at 4:45 p.m. Friday, with activities set to get underway at 5 p.m.
