The Harper College athletic department will be hosting an opening ceremony to kick off the 2013-2014 school year on Friday, Aug. 30.

The event will be held in the gymnasium in the Wellness & Sports Center (Building M) and is open to all students. It will start at 11:30 AM (food will be served) and will feature introductions by Dr. Ashley Knight, Dean of Student Affairs and Doug Spiwak, Director of Athletics. The keynote speaker is former Harper baseball player Scott Balcer.

Balcer played baseball for two years (2007, 2008) at Harper before moving on to pitch at Div. I Chicago State University for two years. After his college career, he played for a free agent team in Florida, and following that, he was contacted by a former college teammate who told him about a professional team in Slovakia in need of pitching. Balcer played for the Trnava Angels in Slovakia and has an incredible story to share at the opening ceremony.
