Baseball Players and fans in the Okanagan will have a chance get some insights into the game with a former World Series champion on Thursday, Jan. 14 in Kelowna.
Former Blue Jays catcher and current Sportsnet analyst Gregg Zaun will be the guest speaker at a special fund raising event at the KLO campus of Okanagan College.
Tickets are $100 each, with money raised going to both the Okanagan College Coyotes and Okanagan Athletics baseball programs.
A veteran of 16 major league seasons, Zaun will discuss his experiences both as a player and a broadcaster.
The evening will feature a hot stove session between Zaun and local sports broadcaster Ryan Watters.
“People will get an insight into the game from Gregg, both on and off the field,” said OC head coach Geoff White. “I’m sure he’ll talk about his career, his transition to the broadcast booth and the Blue Jays run in the playoffs. Greg will be able to relate what the life of a professional player was like and what it took. It should be an interesting evening.”
The evening, which begins at 6:30 p.m.at the KLO Campus Centre for Learning Atrium, will also feature a silent auction.
The Canadian Brewhouse will provide appetizers and drinks.
Tickets are available on the Coyotes website at okanagancollegebaseball.ca
