New Volcanoes manager to meet fans for the first time February 6
KEIZER, Ore. – New 2015 Salem-Keizer Volcanoes Manager Kyle Haines will be the featured guest of the Volcanoes Annual Winter Sports Banquet on Friday, February 6 at the Keizer Quality Suites.
Haines, a 2004 Volcanoes infielder, will make his Giants’ managerial debut with Salem-Keizer this summer. He will meet fans for the first time publicly at the team’s Annual Winter Sports Banquet. The event begins at 6 p.m. with a social hour and sports memorabilia silent auction followed by a special dinner and program beginning at 7 p.m.
Haines was drafted by the Giants in the 31st round of the 2004 MLB First-Year Player Draft from Eastern Illinois University. He spent part of his rookie professional season with the Volcanoes, playing 32 games at shortstop, launching his 10-year professional playing career. Haines, 32, made his managerial debut last season with the Frontier Greys of the independent Frontier League and subsequently was hired by the San Francisco Giants this winter to take over the managerial duties with the Volcanoes.
The Volcanoes Annual Winter Sports Banquet is the unofficial kickoff of the baseball season in the Mid Valley, just one week before pitchers and catchers report to Major League Baseball Spring Training sites.
Individual tickets start at $35, couples are $60 and tables of eight (or seven plus a special guest) are $225. Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets right away with limited space available for this event.
