The 2013 Caray Cup competition is in full swing, and due to popularity, the competition has been extended.
The competition features 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.
News 92 host Kevin Charles, Steve Bunin with Comcast Sports, SportTalk 790's Adam Wexler, and The Madd Hatta Morning Show on 97.9 The Box have already performed, but two competitors still remain.
Here is the schedule for the remaining competitors:
Wednesday, May 1st vs. Lamar at 6:30 p.m. | KHOU 11 TV - Dan Gotera
Friday, May 10th vs. Memphis at 6:30 p.m. | HOT 95.7 - Sarah Pepper and Ivan
Voting will now take place beginning Monday, May 13th at noon and will end on Wednesday, May 15th at noon. All voting will take place on the Rice Owls Athletics Facebook page. The winner will be announced Wednesday, May 15th at 3 p.m.
The 2013 champion will throw out the ceremonial pitch and receive the Caray Cup trophy on Friday, May 17th when the Owls take on Marshall at 6:30 p.m.
