SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Baseball League (SPFBL) will host its annual gala on Friday, May 9th, from 7-11 p.m. at the Italian American Club (1976 Valley Ave.) in Scotch Plains.

"Our annual fundraising dinner is a major source of revenue for the league.  It enables us to replace equipment, make improvements to Booth Field, and pay for any costs not covered by registration fees, including new equipment," said SPFBL President Neil Kaufman.  "It’s always a big hit, so to speak.  We are looking forward to a great turnout."

The evening will feature a buffet dinner, dessert, beer and wine, and music by local band The Dumbwaitors. Local merchants and others are pitching in to help the baseball league.  Tricky trays and silent auction prizes include:
