Joe Kelly is coming home to Corona after signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers in December.
On Wednesday, January 16, Kelly will meet with fans and sign autographs from 5:30pm to 6:30pm at the Council Chambers at Corona City Hall, located at 400 S. Vicentia Ave.
Refreshments will be served.
Kelly is a graduate of Corona High School, and attended college at nearby UC Riverside.
In a news release, Corona Mayor Jason Scott had this to say,
It isn’t every day that a local talent makes the big leagues. We are incredibly proud and excited for the opportunity to welcome a hometown hero.
The 30 year-old Joe Kelly is coming off a 5 year career with the Boston Red Sox that resulted in a World Series championship — over the Dodgers, incidentally — in 2018.
