01/10/2013 7:09 PM ET
WOODBRIDGE, Va. -- The Potomac Nationals are delighted to return their 18th Annual Hot Stove Banquet and Silent Auction, an off-season hallmark of the Potomac Baseball franchise, to the Hyatt Fairfax at Fair Lakes on Sunday, Jan. 20 beginning with a cocktail reception at 5:30 p.m.

Indulge in an evening of Nationals baseball talk, an exquisite silent auction to benefit S.P.A.R.K. (Supporting Partnerships and Resources for Kids), delicious food, and fellowship with the P-Nats faithful as the countdown begins for Major League Baseball Spring Training and Opening Day 2013.

Potomac Nationals owner and chairman/CEO Art Silber will be addressing the hot stove ballroom to provide more details about the P-Nats' new stadium project planned for the 2015 season to be located in the Potomac Town Center in Prince William County, Va.

Silber will unveil the most updated renderings of the proposed ballpark and also take guests of the banquet on a visual tour of the new stadium home of the Potomac Nationals.

Silber plans to elaborate upon the many unique hallmarks that will be featured within the landscape of the P-Nats' new ballpark, including staples that will pay homage to Griffith Stadium, former home of the Washington Senators.

"We're going to take the opportunity at our annual Hot Stove Banquet for the first time, to publicly show the detailed renderings of our new Potomac Town Center ballpark. The ballpark is incredibly exciting and its design and features will make it the finest sports venue in the greater Washington area," said Silber.

"Our stadium will have features that will remind fans of old Griffith Stadium. It will have three decks with a huge wraparound party deck on top with views of the Potomac River, as well as Club and suite levels. The Club will be a great year-round sports bar with views of the ballpark, river, and the Potomac Town Center.

"We'll have a crab shack in center field for steamed crabs and a beer garden, broad plazas, playground for the kids, and the most comfortable seats you'll ever sit in with perfect sight lines."
