The BC Sports Hall of Fame has teamed up with the Vancouver Canadians once again this summer to honor the past and inspire the future.
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.
Some BC Sports Hall of Fame inductees for baseball include Arnie Hallgren, Larry Walker, and Helen and Margaret Callaghan who each have unique and inspiring stories.
Last year I partnered with the BC Sports Hall of Fame and the Vancouver Canadians for three weeks of giveaways and we already did it again this summer. We now have one giveaway left for the Vancouver Canadians vs the Everett Aquasox on August 16th with special guest Duane Ward.
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 Canadian baseball player (past/present/any league) (1 entry)
- Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
I will draw one winner at random from all entries next Monday, August 6, 2012 at 10:00am. The BC Sports Hall of Fame will also be FREE for kids this BC Day (Monday, August 6th). Update The winner is Jackie!
