Outpitch the Provost Contest

Thursday, August 1

UPDATE: Contest is now closed. Two contestants will be randomly selected and contacted on Monday, August 12. Pitch-off takes place on-campus on Wednesday, August 14.

CONTEST ALERT: Ever dream of throwing out the first pitch of a professional baseball game? Well, here’s your chance! On Monday, August 19, Langara is sponsoring the Vancouver Canadians game vs the Boise Hawks and one lucky person from our community will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Sign up for your chance to do the honours.

What’s the catch?

If selected, you’ll need to outpitch a fellow contestant as well as our Provost (and Vice-President of Academic and Students), Dr. Ben Cecil.

How do I join?

1. Sign up below;
2. On Monday, August 12, two entrants will be randomly selected;
3. Then on Wednesday, August 14, if you’re one of our two contestants, you’ll compete in a pitch-off against each other and our Provost to select the winner.*

*Our two contestants will receive a pair of tickets to the game on August 19.

Open to students, staff, faculty, alumni, and all other members of the Langara community. Entries close on Sunday, August 11 at 11:59pm.

Sign up and good luck!



You’re up to bat.
