Huntington and Cleveland State Participate in Cross-Border ACLS Wager

As Canada’s team, the Toronto Blue Jays, begins pursuit of the World Series for the second year running, Huntington University is raising the stakes yet again in a friendly cross-border ALCS wager with the competition’s hometown.

The friendly wager put forward by Huntington University President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Kevin McCormick – a life-long Toronto Blue Jays Fan – was quickly accepted by Ronald M. Berkman, the President of Cleveland State University, located in Cleveland, Ohio.

“This clearly is Cleveland’s year, after the Cavaliers ended our city’s championship drought this summer,” said Dr. Berkman. “We have full confidence in our beloved baseball team and are certain that the Canadian maple syrup will arrive here in no time.”

“Last year we initiated a similar wager with Rockhurst University in Kansas City, where Canadian maple syrup and Kansas City barbecue sauce were on the line,” said Dr. McCormick. “We may have had to give up the goods in 2015, but we’re confident this time we’ll be firing up the grill and enjoying our hot dogs and hamburgers topped with Cleveland’s famous Stadium mustard.”
