Cal Lutheran University will memorialize Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson Tuesday night at the Lundring Center on the school's Thousand Oaks campus.
The former Thousand Oaks resident, who became the first manager to win a World Series with both a National League and American League team by skippering the Cincinnati Reds (1975, 1976) and Detroit Tigers (1984) to glory, died locally in Nov. 2010.
Hosted by CLU president Chris Kimball, the event will be headlined by Alan Trammell, the World Series MVP from Anderson's 1984 Detroit team, and Angels manager Mike Scioscia
The event will include a reception with ballpark cuisine and a question-and-answer period, will begin at 6:30 p.m.
A limited number of seats are still available. Tickets are $40 and will benefit Anderson's charities of choice, CATCH and the CLU baseball program. Call 805-493-3100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
