Without their top-flight talent and main leadership from a year ago; another challenging season looks to be on the horizon for the Quakers.

After four stellar years at Meiklejohn stadium, 2015 Penn graduate and left-handed pitcher Ronnie Glenn was taken in the 22nd round of the Major League Baseball draft.

22 years ago, before most of the players on today's team were even born, Penn baseball won the Ivy League Championship. Since then, it has only returned to the championship series once, 10 years ago in 2007. Now, they’re back and only Yale stands in the way.

04/23/17 9:17pm
Just keep winning. If last weekend’s four-game sweep of Princeton wasn’t the biggest weekend of the season for Penn baseball, then maybe this weekend was.

It was a big-time stage for a big-time game — but by the slimmest of possible margins, Penn baseball couldn’t get the big-time win it’d been seeking for decades.
