READING, Pa. -

With mid-January upon us, the Baseball talk is starting in Berks County.  The Phillies bring their group to town next week, but Thursday night it was the Hot Stover's Banquet that honors some of the top players and teams from within Berks County from last year. 

Among the honorees this year were the Daniel Boone softball team and the Shillington Legion baseball team. Also honored was the 1983 Reading High state champion baseball team, which was celebrating its 30th anniversary.

The keynote speaker was a guy that narrowly missed out on making it into the Baseball Hall of Fame again this year, former Atlanta Brave and Philadelphia Phillie Dale Murphy.

His message talked about living life the right way so that when the younger people in the audience grow up, they won't have any regrets.
