In 2016, when Joe Maddon led Chicago to a 10th inning 8-7 win against Cleveland, the team broke a 108-year world championship drought to take home baseball’s most prestigious series honor.
This special Inside Access from Chase evening with Joe Maddon will take place at Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse in River North and will include a cocktail reception with passed hors d’oeuvres and a buffet-style dinner. Guests will have the opportunity to hear first-hand about Joe’s amazing career in baseball. Following a moderated conversation and time for questions, guests will have an opportunity to take a photo with the Chicago team’s manager!
Joe joined Chicago in 2014 as the team’s 54th manager following nine seasons at the helm of Tampa Bay where he led them to four post-season appearances and the American League pennant. In 2015, Joe led Chicago to the National League Championship Series and was named National League Manager of the Year for the third time, having been recognized twice previously when he was in Tampa.
Joe Maddon also founded the Respect 90 Foundation which provides children and families opportunities to develop championship attitudes through sports, academics, and community involvement.
As a memento from the evening, guests will receive a pre-signed Joe Maddon baseball.
