Dan Lang Field

baseball game

The Varsity Blues play on the Dan Lang Field at UTSC.

U of T President David Naylor renamed the UTSC baseball diamond the “Dan Lang Field,” in honour of Professor Dan Lang, who coached the Varsity Blues for 13 seasons, leading them to two Ontario University Athletics (OUA) league championships and two silver medals. Named OUA Coach of the Year twice, Lang also spearheaded the fundraising drive that built the permanent Varsity Blues baseball facility. He retired last year as a coach. More recently, he served as Senior Policy Advisor to the UTSC President, as well as Coordinator, Program in Higher Education, in the Department of Theory and Policy Studies at U of T’s Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.
