Hot Stove to welcome new Rome manager
Matt Tuiasosopo, Brian Snitker and other guests are set for the Jan. 28 event.
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.”
