Celebrating 150 Years

Posted: Updated:

The Dartmouth baseball team took three of four from Penn and Columbia in a pair of doubleheaders this weekend at Red Rolfe Field.   That's reason enough to celebrate, but on Saturday, generations of the Dartmouth baseball family returned to Hanover to honor a legacy 150 years in the making.  Baseball was the first varsity sport at Dartmouth, the first game being played in 1866.  Since then, Dartmouth has played nearly 3,800 games, winning more than half of them.  On Saturday, a group of around 200, representing more than sixty years of baseball at Dartmouth, gathered in Hanover to commemorate the sport's history at the College.  From former Major Leaguers like Jim Beattie and Mike Remlinger to more recent alums, everyone on hand reminisced about the impact the baseball program at Dartmouth had on them.
