Baseball fans will have a special treat this year at Reckling Park as the Owls host the second-annual Caray Cup singing competition.
The competition will feature local media hosts singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the 7th inning stretch atop the Owls dugout at select games this spring. Each performance will be recorded and posted on the Rice Athletics YouTube page. Once the performance schedule concludes, Rice Athletics will post the videos on the Rice Owls Athletics Facebook page for fan voting. The performer with the most "likes" during the voting period will be crowned the 2013 Caray Cup champion.
The champion will be presented the second-annual Caray Cup trophy after he/she throws out the ceremonial pitch before the Owls take on Lamar set for Wednesday, May 1st at Reckling Park.
Along with the winner, one lucky voter of the winning performance will win four tickets to a suite at Reckling to enjoy the game with the Caray Cup winner.
