The Rome Braves are once again set­ting up a place for fans to come in out of the cold and get the con­ver­sa­tion heated up about the up­com­ing base­ball sea­son.

New Rome Braves man­ager Matt Tuia­sosopo will be joined by At­lanta Braves man­ager Brian Snitker and ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager Alex An­thopou­los at the team’s an­nual Hot Stove Gath­er­ing on Jan. 28 at the Fo­rum River Cen­ter.

Other guests an­nounced by the team on Thurs­day in­clude Rome Braves hit­ting coach Bobby Moore and coach Wig­berto Ne­varez, as well as for­mer Rome Braves play­ers Drew Waters and Brae­den Sch­le­hu­ber.

“We are ex­cited to again be host­ing the 17th an­nual Rome Braves Hot Stove event at the Fo­rum River Cen­ter,” said Jim Bishop, the Rome Braves’ vice pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager.

“Brent Po­plin and his staff at the Fo­rum River Cen­ter are al­ways so gra­cious and the venue serves as a won­der­ful home for our an­nual event. The sup­port we re­ceive from the At­lanta Braves staff, the Rome Braves coach­ing staff and the amaz­ing Rome Braves fan base each year for our Hot Stove is fab­u­lous. We look for­ward to a fun evening for ev­ery­one in at­ten­dance.”
