The 38th annual Bobby Dolan Baseball Dinner will be held Jan. 25 at the Silver Legacy Reno Ballroom, the Nevada athletic department announced this week.

Former Nevada baseball standouts Andy Dominique (1994-97), Chris Gimenez (2002-04) and Miles Mastrobuoni (2016) will be the featured speakers on the panel at the event.

Tickets start at $200 for general admission and $350 for VIP, which includes a meet-and-greet with Dominique, Gimenez, and Mastrobuoni. Tables for 10 are also available for $3,500.

The event begins with a VIP reception at 4:30 p.m., cocktails at 5:30 p.m., and dinner at 6:30 p.m.

The speakers all went on to reach the major leagues:

• Dominique was the 1997 Big West Player of the Year. He closed his Wolf Pack career as the program’s all-time leader in games played (213, now fifth) and hits (272, now fifth), and remains the program’s career (62) and single-season (30) leader in home runs. He was drafted in the 1997 amateur draft by the Philadelphia Phillies, and made his major-league debut in 2004 with the Boston Red Sox.

• After being drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 19th round in 2004, Gimenez made his MLB debut in 2009 and played for six teams over his 10-year career. At Nevada, he batted .327 with 144 hits, 30 home runs, and 103 RBI, and was a two-time All-WAC selection.

• Mastrobuoni, a 14th-round selection of the Tampa Bay Rays in 2016, became the 24th Wolf Pack alum to make his major-league debut when he took on Sept. 22 in the past season. In his lone year at Nevada in 2016, Mastrobuoni hit .362 and added 50 runs, 79 hits, 17 doubles, 38 RBI, and 17 stolen bases.
