Two more bits of news.  It's been a busy offseason for NESCAC alums in major league front offices.

Jim Duquette (Williams '88), who was previously with the Mets, is Baltimore's new V-P for Baseball Operations.  As you may know another Williams alum owns the Yankees (George Steinbrenner, Class of '52).

Elsewhere in the AL East, the Boston Red Sox have named Jed Hoyer (Wesleyan '96) Co-General Manager.  The Cardinals just graduated a player who Yankee and Oriole fans will recognize with opposing emotions, Jeffrey Maier.

Let's not forget that Trinity grad Jonah Bayliss made his major league debut for the Royals this past summer.  Pitching rather well in his games at Fenway and Yankee stadium. 

Fellow Bantam Jeff Natale will be playing single A in the Red Sox organization, after a great fall with the Greenville Bombers.

Interesting site. You can see by where a MLB player went to school.

That is a cool site.

One night during the off-season (read summer) I went through all the Division III schools just to see which players I recognized.  Talk about too much time on my hands. :)

Lou Masur, an American Studies Professor at Trinity has a great book out recounting the first ever world series b/t the Boston Americans and Pittsburgh Pirates.  It's called Autumn Glory.  If you call yourself a baseball fan, this is a must read.

Hoyer's new co-GM is no other than Amherst alum Ben Cherington, making it two NESCAC alums near the top of the Sox (with Theo still king).

Over the past 10 years it's been Amherst, Tufts, Trinity, and Williams beating each other up for the bid.

Cant speak for the others, but the Jumbos drive down south (practicing a coupletimes along the way) and play their way back home.  They have a rediculous schedule this year with only 6 home dates...nuts.

That'll happen in the Northeast.  At least the winter wasn't so bad this year that the home games will be cancelled due to unplayable conditions.
