Whitey Herzog Speaks at All-Star Gala

Posted: Updated:

Major League Hall of Fame manager Whitey Herzog will throw out the first pitch at the 76th Annual Texas League All-Star Game at ONEOK Field in Tulsa, OK Thursday night.

Wednesday he was the keynote speaker for the All-Star Gala at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Tulsa.

He played nine seasons in the big leagues.  He said the Majors was very good to him... (pause)... after he stopped playing.  That got the crowd laughing pretty hard.  He also said that he was given the nickname "The Judge" when he played.  Because he was always on the bench.  Whitey had the room rolling.

The ONEOK Field gates open at 5:00pm.  The Home Run Derby gets underway around 5:50pm.

The Texas League All-Star game begins at 7:05.
