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.
