Penn baseball is looking to improve after falling just short in each of the last two seasons. But after their roster was pillaged by the University's 2015 Commencement Ceremony, the Quakers will have to fight just to stay afloat.

2015 College graduate Ronnie Glenn is taking none of the typically prescribed post-grad paths.
This summer, Penn Baseball alumni Austin Bossart and Ronnie Glenn have taken their talents from the Ivy League to the Minor Leagues.
Bossart and Glenn recently began their professional baseball careers after being selected in June’s Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
It's an inconvenient truth: Penn baseball lost one of its best senior classes in history.
Last year, the Quakers had three members of the Class of 2015 hit over .300.
While many Penn students spend their summers indoors carrying out research or interning for a firm, many Red and Blue baseball players are using time away from school to continue to participate in the national pastime.

There’s really only one way to describe the end of Penn baseball’s season: Frustrating.
Penn baseball falls short for second straight year.

That is the question currently facing Penn baseball, which will travel well over eight miles to Columbia this weekend to play in the Lou Gehrig Division’s one-game playoff.

Penn baseball knew it would be in for its greatest test of the season this weekend against an evenly matched opponent in Columbia.
The Quakers took the field on Saturday tied for first place in the Ivy League's Lou Gehrig Division hoping to clinch the title by winning at least three out of the four games.
To paraphrase the famous hardball philosopher Yogi Berra, it’s deja vu all over again.
For the second time in as many years, Penn baseball enters the final weekend of the regular season tied with Columbia atop the Ivy League’s Lou Gehrig Division.
And for the second consecutive year, the Quakers (20-12, 14-2 Ivy) will face off with their foes from the Big Apple in a winner-take-all, four game series.
Exactly one year ago today, Penn baseball stood tied atop the Lou Gehrig Division heading into a four-game series against Columbia.
Some outside the program viewed their success as unexpected, shocking even.
For the second straight year, Penn baseball controls its own destiny with a four-game series against the Columbia Lions on the horizon.

Each year, the start of spring heralds the most glorious time of the year—great weather, fun times as school winds down and, of course, baseball season.
