FORMER CINCINNATI REDS PITCHER TO BE HONORED AT THE WORLD SERIES CLUB ON MARCH 22, 2018
WEST HARTFORD, CT – On March 22, 2018 former major league player Tom Browning will be honored at the World Series Club at the West Hartford VFW.
Browning was a ninth round pick in Major League Baseball’s 1982 draft. He played 12 seasons in the MLB, playing for the Reds and Royals. He suffered a serious broken arm while delivering a pitch that many believe cost his some years off his career.
He threw the 12th perfect game in Major League history. On September 16, 1988, pitching against the LA Dodgers, Browning needed only 102 pitches to retire 27 straight batters at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati. To this day, he remains 1 of only 23 pitchers to throw a perfect game in Major League history.
Browning was also a member of the 1990 World Series Champion Cincinnati Reds, when they defeated the Oakland Athletics. He led the Reds to a victory in Game 3 of the series, which was a 4 game sweep for the Reds.
“We are excited to honor Tom Browning at The World Series Club to celebrate an outstanding Major League career that folks remember very well,” said club president, Tim Brennan.
Tickets for the Browning dinner meeting at The World Series Club, may be obtained on the club’s site, www.worldseriesclub.com and include a buffet dinner, meet & greet, autographs and an opportunity for questions and answers.
