“The Best Sports Stag in the Country” has hosted some of the biggest names in baseball, including Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan and Sparky Anderson, eight other baseball hall of famers, and Joe Torre, Marty Brennaman and Joe Nuxhall. Leyland managed against last year’s Stag speakers, the Nasty Boys – Norm Charlton, Rob Dibble and Randy Myers.
“This is a fun event that is open to everyone 21 years old and older,” said Ken Barlag, La Salle’s Director of Planned Giving. “The Stag is sponsored by the La Salle Alumni Association, with 22 (people) on the committee; 95 percent of the committee are La Salle alumni.”
