Wednesday was the one of the worst days of my life. I got up early, made the six-hour drive from Philly to Cleveland, took the train downtown with some friends and went to a baseball game. A lifelong Indians fan, the chance to go to game seven of a World Series was absolutely surreal.

Ivy League pitcher to start for the Cubs in Game 7 of the World Series tonight

As if this year's World Series couldn't get crazier — the Chicago Cubs' very own starting pitcher for Game 7, Kyle Hendricks, once pitched against Penn as a member of Dartmouth's Big Green baseball team.  Before Hendricks rose up to the Major League, he joined Dartmouth and pitched the clinching game against Cornell in the best-of-three Ivy League Championship Series as a freshman in 2009 — his skill of pitching series-deciding games was acquired early on in his career.  When Hendricks faced off against Penn in 2011, the junior recorded six strikeouts.

NEW YORK — Going into the final weekend of the season versus Columbia, Penn baseball had to be pretty much perfect if they hoped to gain a game on Princeton and earn a berth in the elusive Ivy Championship Series. Unfortunately, that was not to be.

Quite literally, it's anybody's game. A chance at the Ivy League title is at stake for Penn, and every other team in the conference. Penn baseball (18-19, 9-7 Ivy) will play a four-game series against Columbia (13-23, 7-9) this weekend, with Friday's doubleheader being played at Penn and Saturday's games to be played in New York.

As Penn baseball coach John Yurkow was faced with the prospect of life without former co-Ivy League Player of the Year Austin Bossart following the 2015 season, he didn’t have to look all that far from home.

If there were any questions about the Quakers’ production from behind the plate, consider junior catcher Tim Graul the answer.

There’s definitely something in the water when it comes to Penn baseball catchers.
