The BC Sports Hall of Fame is teaming up with the Vancouver Canadians once again this summer to honor the past and inspire the future. Vancouver has quite a history in baseball and I’ve only ever touched a bit on it myself, recently doing a feature on the old Athletic Park.

The BC Sports Hall of Fame re-opened last fall in BC Place and you can visit daily from 10:00am to 5:00pm. Save your ticket stub from a Vancouver Canadians, BC Lions, or Whitecaps FC match and bring it to the Hall for 1/2 price admission for up to 2 weeks following game day. You can browse through the hall of inductees (including the class of 2011), learn about the legendary Asahi baseball team in old Japantown, and check out special galleries like the Vancouver 2010, Terry Fox, and Rick Hansen exhibits.

Last year I partnered with the BC Sports Hall of Fame and the Vancouver Canadians for three weeks of giveaways and inductee features including Arnie Hallgren, Larry Walker, Helen and Margaret Callaghan. We’re doing it again for two games this season, the first being the Vancouver Canadians vs the Everett Aquasox on July 9th with special guest George Bell.

You can enter for the chance to win 10 tickets to the game and throw out the ceremonial first pitch in front of family, friends, and the whole Nat Bailey crowd. Here’s how you can enter to win this incredible experience:

  • Leave a comment naming a BC Sports Hall of Famer (full inductees list) (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win 10 @VanCanadians tix & throw out the ceremonial first pitch from @BCSportsHall & @Miss604

I will draw one winner at random from all entries next Wednesday, July 4, 2012 at 10:00am. Update The winner is James K!
