Not sure where to put this but a good story.

Only college baseball game I've gone to. Was the week of my graduation.  In addition to Darling, that Yale team also had an a super bowl special teamer / backup running back (Rich Diana for Miami), an Olympian / Rangers defenseman (Bobby Brooke), and an NFL backup QB (Joe Dufek, Bills and then Chargers). A friend I work with was a freshman on that team.  He said the team was huge but fielded that way.

I knew you would be interested but had no idea you were actually there.  Must have been quite the match.
