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.
04/25/16 11:32pm
There’s definitely something in the water when it comes to Penn baseball catchers.

This weekend, Penn baseball Grauled Cornell.

As the spring season starts to wind down, there are a number of Penn teams in the hunt for an Ivy title and beyond.

After dropping three of four to Princeton this past weekend, Penn baseball needed a win. They got it.

While they may have been non-entities last year, sophomore right-handed pitcher Billy Lescher and junior southpaw Gabe Kleiman have become indispensable members of Penn baseball’s pitching staff this season.

When it comes to Ivy League baseball’s Lou Gehrig division, there’s a new sheriff in town.
04/13/16 11:13pm
The Quakers had plenty of time to work on their game during a midweek tune-up for a huge Ivy series, but didn't get the result they'll be hoping for this weekend.
04/12/16 10:41pm
For the second time this season, Penn baseball will sandwich an out-of-league matchup between two strings of four straight Ivy League doubleheaders.

It takes a lot to be a Penn athlete. It takes even more to be a successful Penn athlete. And it’s damn near impossible to excel in the world of professional sports.

This year was supposed to be a step backwards for Penn baseball. After a program-record 14 Ivy League wins a season ago, the Red and Blue graduated a cavalcade of veteran standouts; a total of ten seniors played their final games in 2015, two of whom — Austin Bossart and Ronnie Glenn — were talented enough to take their skills to the professional level. And accordingly, the team has not been as dominant as it was a year ago.

It involved a lot of late-inning action, but Penn baseball walked away with the weekend split against Dartmouth and Harvard, losing the first game in back-to-back doubleheaders before taking the second.

The season series between Penn baseball and Lafayette officially goes to the Quakers. Just two weeks after splitting a four-game series with the Leopards, the Red and Blue defeated their Easton, Pa., rivals, 6-5, on the road. Playing in their second game in the Liberty Bell Classic — following a 9-4 loss to Villanova last week — the Quakers (11-12) came out in a hurry on Tuesday.
04/03/16 10:28pm
Penn baseball started Ivy League play with a loss, but quickly worked to erase any memory of it this weekend. After falling in the first game of a Saturday doubleheader to Brown, 8-5, the Quakers won a 3-1 pitchers duel to split the day.
