McGregor, a first-round pick by the New York Yankees in 1972, pitched his entire 13-year major league career with the Baltimore Orioles, winning 138 games, including a career-high 20 in 1980.

Blomberg is best known for being the first designated hitter in major league history when he batted for the New York Yankees against the Boston Red Sox in Fenway Park on April 6, 1973.

Cote is a native of Sanbornton and made his much-anticipated professional debut this summer with the New York Yankees’ Gulf Coast League affiliate. A graduate of Winnisquam Regional High School, the 2011 third-round draft pick posted a 3-0 record and 0.98 ERA for the GCL Yankees before a promotion to short-season Staten Island.

LaValliere played 12 major league seasons, seven of which came with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He is a graduate of Trinity High School and UMass-Lowell, and was signed by the Philadelphia Phillies as an amateur free agent in 1981.

Glenn, a power-hitting outfielder from Oklahoma, spent the entire 2012 season with the Fisher Cats, leading the team with 19 home runs and 63 RBI.

Jeroloman has been a fan favorite since making his Fisher Cats debut in 2008. He spent the majority of the 2012 season with New Hampshire, displaying his usual defensive prowess.

Maher teamed with Jordan Cote on the Gulf Coast Yankees in his pro debut this past summer. The right-hander, drafted out of Bedford High School in the 38th round in 2011, made seven appearances over the summer, mixing in three starts.

Zapenas, a graduate of Nashua North High School, will be making his second appearance at the dinner. This past season, he played for the Peoria Chiefs, the Class A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, and hit .273 before a shoulder injury ended his season in May.
