EXTRA: Dinner Plans Spoiled Again

Due to circumstances beyond our control – COVID-19 restrictions and the MLB Lockout – the New York Baseball Writers’ Dinner, scheduled for Jan. 29, 2022, has been canceled.

Refunds will be issued in the coming days.

We look forward to the event returning on Jan. 28, 2023, at the New York Hilton, to honor our annual award winners and to present a special celebration of the 1998 Yankees and their historic and unforgettable season.

Thank you for your patience.
