Hall of Famer Steve Carlton to Miss Hot Springs Baseball Weekend, August 14-15, Due to Travel Difficulty

Published: 8/4/2020

HOT SPRINGS NATIONAL PARK, Arkansas — Major League Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Steve Carlton will be forced to miss his scheduled appearance at the Third Annual Hot Springs Baseball Weekend, August 14 – 15, because of travel difficulties caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic, it was announced today.

 “Mister Carlton encountered difficulty making arrangements to travel from his home in Colorado because of problems brought about by the pandemic,” said Visit Hot Springs CEO Steve Arrison. “We really regret that he will be unable to attend and we look forward to having him back with us at a future Baseball Weekend. He is one of the greatest pitchers of all time and we hope he can come some other time.”

“Hall of Famer Ted Simmons, Hall of Famer Lee Smith and Al (The Mad Hungarian) Hrabosky are still scheduled to join us for a groundbreaking for the new youth baseball complex at historic Majestic Park on Friday, August 14, and for discussions with fans at events all-day Saturday, August 15, at the Hot Springs Convention Center,” Arrison said. “All the events are free and open to the public. We’ll require face coverings for all who attend and have made allowances for required social distancing at all our events.”

For more information call Steve Arrison at 501-321-2027.
