SPAD Jays Game 2015

Jays GameWhile most students attend university between September and April, in SPAD it’s year-round excitement and a lifetime of networking. The next two posts on the SPAD Blog will describe some of the great summer traditions and opportunities for SPAD students.

On August 15th, approximately 70 Sports Administration students ventured to the Rogers Centre for the annual SPAD Blue Jays game hosted by SPAD Council. It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon, the sun was shining and the roof was open. It was going to be a great afternoon of baseball. The game was between the Toronto Blue Jays and the New York Yankees, both teams neck and neck looking to win the American League East.

The game is an annual tradition where SPAD students can catch up with fellow classmates, and kickstart the new year. Like every year before, this is the first opportunity for upper-year students to meet some of the new SPAD Frosh. It’s also the frosh’s first chance to fully appreciate the SPAD experience and the strong network of students and alumni. Unfortunately for all the Jays fans in attendance, the experience wasn’t perfect, as the Blue Jays’ bats didn’t show up and they lost 4-1 to the Yankees.

Fortunately the festivities didn’t end there as a large number of the attending students walked down the street to Real Sports, North Americas premiere sports bar. It was a great time to share some laughs over dinner and drinks; a great day for all.

SPAD Council President, Neal Steven, was pleased with the excellent turnout and had this to say: “It was great to see so many SPAD students, alumni, and some excited new frosh come out and enjoy a wonderful afternoon of baseball.”

The annual SPAD Blue Jays game is always a great time for students. It has definitely made every one of us excited to head back up to Sudbury for another great year in SPAD.
