May 1875 Recap

The regional standings stayed steady through the end of the regular season, with no major injuries to players. On May 19th, Brown clinched a playoff spot. Meanwhile, Penn clinched the Atlantic Region and Syracuse laid claim to the Northeast Region.

Columbia University took this time to fire their manager, Matt Hartman. Hartman's teams were 105-131 in his nearly four years at the helm, from 1872-1875. The Lions were 22-34 at the time of his dismissal.


Matt Hartman

On May 22nd, the next to the last day of the 1875 season, Brown clinched the New England Region, while Harvard secured the Wild Card position. And so, the playoffs were set. Harvard (35-25) was traveling to Syracuse (39-21), while Penn (36-24) was on the road to face Brown (39-21). Syracuse had gone 2-0 against Harvard this season, while Penn held a 2-0 record against Brown.

1875 Playoff Series Game 1

Harvard and Syracuse only faced each other two times in the regular season, and those games weren't kind to the defending champion Crimson. Syracuse's George Bradley (38-21, 1.81) held Harvard to a total of 10 hits in those two games and allowed only two earned runs. Eric Weber (35-25, 1.63), on the other hand, had allowed 26 hits and seven earned runs to the Orange. But, this was the playoffs, so anything could happen.

Both pitchers threw well for the first three innings. Harvard got three singles to start the 4th inning, but a caught stealing and a double play ended that threat. Syracuse drew first blood in the bottom of the 4th. With one out, junior center fielder Walt Moser (.280, 0 HR, 28 RBI) got a base hit to left. Moser advanced to third on a steal attempt with a throwing error on the catcher. Senior first baseman Adrian Robinson grounded the ball through the gap on the right side to score Moser. After four innings, Syracuse led 1-0.

In the top of the 7th, with one on and two outs, Harvard third baseman, senior Dylan Burch (.243, 0 HR, 16 RBI) hits a line drive to right field, scoring Cameron Baker from third and tying the game 1-1. Burch steals second base with pinch hitter Jim Britt (.162, 0 HR, 3 RBI) at the plate. Britt works a 2-2 count and loops the ball into right field. Burch comes around third as right fielder Henry Luff fields the ball and throws it home. Burch is SAFE at the plate and gives Harvard a 2-1 advantage!!!

Syracuse can't get a run in the bottom of the 7th. Harvard scores a run in the top of the 8th on an error to make it 3-1. Meanwhile, the Orange go down in order in the bottom of the 8th. The Crimson get three hits and two more runs in the top of the 9th. Syracuse tries to rally in the bottom of the 9th with two outs, but they only score one run. Final score: Harvard 5 Syracuse 2.

Penn traveled to Brown to take on the Bears. Brown felt pretty confident in their match-up, taking both games of a two games series against Penn during the regular season. Wally Montague (36-24, 2.06) had a rough couple of outings against the Bears, allowing 25 hits in 14 IP, with a 6.43 ERA. Regardless, he was the Quaker's starter. On the mound for Brown was Matt Ogle (24-19, 2.61). Ogle had allowed 12 hits and four earned runs in 9 IP against Penn.

The game was scoreless until Penn got on the board in the top of the 3rd. With two men on (compliments of two Brown errors) and two outs, sophomore second baseman Ben Carter (.225, 0 HR, 28 RBI) singles into the gap in left center, scoring two and give the Quakers a 2-0 lead. Penn would add a run in the 4th to make it 3-0 and would build on their lead in the 5th with a bases loaded double by senior first baseman Ian Slaughter (.239, 1 HR, 24 RBI). After five innings, Penn held a comfortable 6-0 lead.

But Brown would come back, scoring two runs in the 6th and 7th innings, cutting the lead to 6-4. The Bears would take the lead in the 8th, as senior left fielder Paul Hines (.325, 0 HR, 34 RBI) started the inning off with a triple. Three more hits and an error later, Brown had plated four runs and led the game 8-6 going into the 9th.

The first two Penn batters went down, leaving the Quakers with only one more out. After allowing a base hit, the Bear defense imploded. Two errors and a wild pitch later, the game was tied at 8. Slaughter would again deliver, as he singled past the shortstop to score Austin Sherman from third. Down 9-8 in the bottom of the 9th, Brown recorded two quick outs. Pinch hitter Bryan Myers delivered a base hit to extend the inning and was replaced by pinch runner Mike Feldstein. Jacob Kiskadden got a base hit and Feldstein took off and rounded second. Unfortunately for the Bears, Feldstein was gunned down at third for the final out of the game. Penn wins Game 1, 9-8.

1875 Playoff Series Game 2

Syracuse came into Cambridge with one goal. Win the game and get back home. Harvard also had only one goal. End this series and get a chance to defend their national championship title. Both George Bradley and Eric Weber were back on the mound for Game 2.

Harvard would get on the board quickly. With one out in the bottom of the 1st inning, Crimson senior right fielder Ben King gets on base compliments of a throwing error by Bradley. King makes it to second and advances to third on a fly out to deep right center. Senior center fielder Jesse Vest then delivered a line drive into center field for a base hit, scoring King and giving Harvard an early 1-0 lead.

The Crimson would build on their lead in the 3rd inning. Harvard would score three runs on four base hits and an error. After three innings, it was 4-0, Harvard. Syracuse would manage to get on the board in the top of the 6th, when senior left fielder Kevin "Spike" Benson scored from third on a fly out, beating the throw home. Down 4-1, Syracuse's bats would come alive again the next inning. After two fly outs to start the 7th, junior second baseman Josh Danz gets an infield hit down the third base line. Sophomore shortstop Jason Henn then gets hit by a pitch, putting men on first and second for the Orange. "Spike" Benson swings at the first pitch sent his way and sends it over the center fielder's head, scoring both runners. Benson makes it to third and subsequently scores on a wild pitch. Game tied, 4-4.

Harvard recorded two quick outs in the bottom of the 7th. Little used junior second baseman Ken Hopp (.208, 0 HR, 3 RBI) is sent to the plate as a pinch hitter. After taking two called strikes, Hopp fouls one off. Finding his groove, Hopp makes contact with the fourth pitch and sends it down the right field line for a double. Junior third baseman Kevin Morgan comes up next for the Crimson and works a 2-2 count while fouling off three pitches. The seventh pitch makes contact with Morgan's bat and Morgan grounds the ball past the shortstop and into left field. Hopp is on his horse, rounds third and scores without a throw to the plate. Harvard retakes the lead, 5-4!!!

Syracuse manages a single in both the 8th and 9th innings, but they can't get a runner across the plate. Harvard wins the game, 5-4, and takes the series, 2-0. The Crimson advance to the Collegiate Championship Series for the second consecutive year and will face the winner of the Penn-Brown series.

Down 1-0 in the series, Brown was looking for a big win on the road against Penn. The Quakers were looking to close out the series and advance to their first ever championship series. After a scoreless 1st inning, Brown's bats got hot in the 2nd. Four of the first five batters hit singles. Coupled with an error, three runs would score by the end of the inning. Bears lead 3-0. Brown added to their lead in the top of the 4th, getting three hits on top of three Quaker errors. The Bears would plate three more runs to make it 6-0.

Brown would chase Wally Montague in the 5th inning. With the hot bats still swinging and the Penn defense faltering badly, the Bears would score four runs on four hits and five errors. By the end of five, the game was blown open, with Brown leading 10-0. Penn managed to score some runs in the 6th, 7th and 8th innings, but they couldn't stop the Bears' offense, which plated five more. In the end, Brown wins the game 15-6 and evens the series 1-1.

1875 Playoff Series Game 3

Rain was in the forecast for Game 3 of the Playoff Series between Penn and Brown, but it wasn't wet enough to keep nearly 1900 people from attending the game at Bears Ballpark. Wally Montague and Matt Ogle were both on the mound for their respective teams in this win or go home Game 3.

With nothing doing in the 1st, Penn would get on the board in the top of the 2nd inning. With two outs and a man on first, the Quakers manage three straight base hits. Coupled with a throwing error, Penn scores two and leads 2-0. Brown gets a run back in the bottom half of the frame as the Quaker defense commits two errors. After two, Penn leads 2-1.

The pitchers would duke it out, with neither team able to plate a run for the next few innings. But Brown would change that in the bottom of the 6th. After recording two outs, the Quaker defense falters again and puts a man on base. Two singles later, freshman right fielder Jim Beaudin beats the throw to the plate to tie the game at 2. Junior shortstop Jim Schafer then delivers the ball to deep left center field for a triple, scoring two runs and giving the Bears a 4-2 lead!!

The score would remain 4-2 going into the 9th inning. Ogle records one out, but then gives up two straight base hits. A fielder's choice makes it two outs, with men on the corners. Penn junior center fielder Kevin Jones (.247, 0 HR, 20 RBI) comes into the game as a pinch hitter. Jones singles into center on the first pitch he sees, scoring the runner from third to cut the lead to 4-3!! The runner from first gets to third base, putting the tying run 90 feet away! Sophomore third baseman Israel Mendoza hits the first pitch he sees, grounding it between first and second. But Brown first baseman Jack Manning snags the ball and flips it to Ogle, who beats Mendoza to the bag for the third out!! Brown wins it, 4-3, and takes the series, 2-1. A New England Region final is set for the Collegiate Championship Series, as Harvard will face off against Brown for the national title.

1875 Collegiate Championship Series, Game 1

Harvard and Brown faced each other 14 times in the regular season, as they are in the same region. Each team won seven times, leading James to believe this series would go the distance. James brought his three oldest sons with him to Providence. Ephraim, who was 20 now, was still attending classes at Rutgers, but was still not seeing any time on the field. James Jr. was now 17 and would be looking to play ball for a college after finishing up his final year of high school. This was the first trip with his dad for Thomas, who had just turned 15. Thomas wanted to follow in Ephraim's footsteps and play collegiate ball, but he still had three more years of school before he could go to college.

Eric Weber and Matt Ogle were on the mound for Harvard and Brown for Game 1 of the Collegiate Championship Series. 1894 people showed up for the game, which would be played in 62 degree weather and a light wind blowing out to center. The first two innings were scoreless, but Harvard put a run on the board in the top of the 3rd inning, as sophomore left fielder Jeff Black led the inning off with a double and later scored on a sac fly. The 1-0 Harvard lead would be brief, however, as Brown came back to tie it in the bottom half of the frame. With two outs, junior third baseman Chris Ashworth singled to right. After stealing second, Ashworth would score on Kevin Scearce's base hit to left, beating the throw to the plate.

Brown would take the lead in the bottom of the 4th on Paul Hines' RBI single. Bears lead, 2-1. The score would remain the same until the bottom of the 6th, when Brown would extend their lead. The Bears scored three runs on three hits and two Crimson errors to give themselves a 5-1 lead after six innings. But Harvard would come storming back in the top of the 7th. The Crimson manage to plate four runs on four hits and two Bear errors, tying the game, 5-5. The game would stay tied until the bottom of the 8th. With men on the corners and two outs, Harvard shortstop, freshman Victor Fraser, botches a grounder, allowing the Bears to score. Brown scores another an a Bryan Myers single to make it 7-5. Harvard gets a man on first in the 9th with two outs, but he's picked off for the third out. Brown takes Game 1, 7-5, and leads the series 1-0.

1875 Collegiate Championship Series, Game 2

While traveling from Providence to Cambridge for Game 2, James learned that Columbia had fired Athletic Director Steve McBride. James was hardly surprised. In the four years (1872-75) that McBride was at the helm, the baseball teams were a combined 107-133. James thought McBride would likely find work elsewhere, as he was only 42 years old.


Steve McBride

There were 1997 people on hand at Crimson Ballpark for Game 2 of the Collegiate Championship Series. It was 73 degrees outside with clear skies, a nearly perfect day at the ballpark. However, there was a moderate wind blowing in from center field that made things feel a bit cooler. Matt Ogle and Eric Weber were again the starters for Brown and Harvard. Brown started the game off with a bang. With one out in the top of the 1st inning, Kevin Scearce hit a home run down the right field line. In any other part of the park, it wouldn't have made it out expect down the lines. Regardless, Brown took an early 1-0 lead.

The Crimson would answer, though, in the bottom of the 2nd. Cameron Baker reaches base on an error, then scores when Adam O'Bryant hits a triple into the right field corner. O'Bryant would tag up from third on a fly out and beat the throw home. After two innings, Harvard leads it 2-1. The Crimson pad their lead in the bottom of the third by getting no hits. But the Bears committed three errors, which led to two Harvard runs. After three, Harvard leads 4-1. Brown gets a run back in the top of the 4th, thanks to a Paul Hines sac fly to make it 4-2. But Harvard would break it open in the 6th inning. After recording two outs, Ogle gives up a single to O'Bryant. After stealing O'Bryant, Ogle intentionally walks Jesse Vest to get to Jacob Doyle. Doyle makes Ogle pay, hitting a triple into deep left center. Two runs score. After another IBB, Ogle makes a wild pick-off throw to first and Doyle scores from third. Ogle gets pulled after that. Harvard plates one more and leads 8-2 after six.

Harvard scores three more runs in the 7th inning and goes on to win this game in blowout fashion, 11-2. The Crimson tie the series 1-1 and send it back to Providence for Game 3.

1875 Collegiate Championship Series, Game 3

Again while traveling between cities, James learned of more dismissals. This time it was Yale, who fired both Manager Noah Breault and Athletic Director Adam Patrick. Breault and Patrick had seen the Bulldogs through 1871-75. Yale was 168-132 during that time, with playoff appearances from '71-'73. Breault was also named Manager of the Year in 1871.



Harvard's attitude going into Game 3 was simple. They were the defending champs until someone proved otherwise. For Brown, the return trip home was humbling after their blowout loss in Game 2, and they were looking to show the home crowd they were a much better team than that. James was at the game with his three sons and 1881 other people. Thomas insisted on holding the championship trophy. James let him and just prayed he wouldn't drop it.

Harvard junior third baseman Kevin Morgan led off the game with a single after working Ogle for nine pitches. Ogle's tenth pitch was thrown for a ball to Ben King, but Brown catcher Jacob Kiskadden gunned down Morgan, who was trying to steal second. After King flew out, Mike Newland reached base on an error and moved to third on Cameron Baker's base hit. Newland would score on a throwing error by Kiskadden, who was trying to throw out Baker stealing second. After one inning, Harvard held a 1-0 lead.

In the bottom of the 2nd, Brown would load the bases on three base hits. Kiskadden would plate a run on a sac fly, but the other runners get stranded. At the end of two, the game is tied 1-1. After a scoreless third inning, Harvard got on the board again in the top of the 4th. With one out, Jacob Doyle singles, then scores on Jeff Black's triple. Black would score on a fielding error by Brown third baseman Chris Ashworth. Ashworth would commit another error later in the inning, allowing another runner to cross. Midway through the 4th, Harvard holds a 4-1 lead. But Brown would answer in the bottom half of the inning. The Bears plate three runs compliments of three hits and two errors. At the end of four, the game is tied 4-4.

The game remained tied until a series of errors allowed the Crimson to take the lead in the 6th. With one out, Rich Hale gets on base on an error. After stealing second, Hale moves to third on an error, then scores on yet another error. After a trio of errors, Harvard leads 5-4. Harvard padded their lead in the top of the 8th compliments of Mike Newland's RBI double. Down 6-4, Brown gets a run in the bottom half of the inning to make it 6-5. Harvard clings to their lead going into the bottom of the 9th. Weber throws eight pitches and the Bears go down in order. Harvard wins the game and the series. The Crimson are now back-to-back National Champions!!!

The Rutgers-Princeton Cannon War

Editors note:

I was researching the possible cause of why attendance numbers dropped for the association in 1875 after rising for the first four seasons. Was it something to do with upgrading to OOTP18 or was it the economics of the time? Interestingly enough, I came across an event in April 1875 regarding the Rutgers-Princeton rivalry.

Apparently there were two revolutionary war cannons left on the grounds of what would become Princeton University. With one cannon larger than the other, they were simply called Big Cannon and Little Cannon. With the threat of invasion during the War of 1812, Big Cannon was moved to New Brunswick to defend the city. After the war, the cannon remained on what would become Rutgers University.

Since the cannon was left, (probably because of it's weight, it was difficult to move) a dispute over ownership of the cannon developed over the following decades. Big Cannon was eventually returned to Princeton. However, in 1875, some Rutgers students tried to remove Big Cannon and return it to New Brunswick. But, since it was too heavy, they took Little Cannon instead. Some months later, Little Cannon was returned to Princeton under the escort of the New Brunswick police chief. This little property dispute, however, has led to the Rutgers-Princeton Rivalry, or at least contributed to it.

March 1876 recap

With another season ready to start, James looked over the upcoming predictions the sportswriters had made. Harvard was favored over Brown in the New England Region. Made sense, being the defending champion and all. The Northeast Region was a bit undecided, with Columbia and Syracuse favored to win, but with Princeton only one game back. And the Atlantic Region was considered by most to be Lafayette's for the taking.



When the season started, Harvard was out to become the first team to win three championships in a row. After going 5-3 in their first eight games, the Crimson ripped off ten straight wins to end the month at 15-3 and built a seven game lead in the New England Region. Princeton finished the month on top in the Northeast Region at 13-5, with Syracuse, Columbia and Rutgers on the Tiger's heels. The surprise was in the Atlantic Region, where Villanova held a three game lead over Lafayette. The Wildcats finished March at 12-6, while the Leopards were struggling at 9-9.

Brown sophomore right fielder Jim Beaudin took home Batter of the Month honors. Beaudin hit .387 with 13 RBI's and 17 runs scored. Princeton sophomore pitcher Jose Munoz took home Pitcher of the Month honors. Munoz was 13-5 with a 1.50 earned run average.

April 1876 Recap

The month of April started out well, with the Collegiate Baseball Association's first no-hitter thrown on April 4th. Harvard senior pitcher Eric Weber threw the gem against the Penn Quakers, giving the Crimson their 13th straight win.



By the end of the month, however, Harvard was starting to falter. After 14 straight wins, the Crimson were swept by Brown in the first weekend series, then lost two of three to the Bears in the final weekend series. Harvard still led the New England Region at 27-13, but Brown was only four games back. In the Northeast Region, five of the six teams were in the hunt for the regional title. Syracuse, Princeton and Rutgers all finished the month tied at the top, with Columbia a half game back and Cornell two games back. Lafayette rebounded and held the lead in the Atlantic Region by a half game over Villanova.

Syracuse senior third baseman Henry Luff won Batter of the Month for April, hitting .378 over 20 games. Luff had one home run, 14 RBI and 15 runs scored. Brown freshman pitcher Brian Bohacek won Pitcher of the Month honors after posting a 17-4 mark, with a 2.18 earned run average.

May 1876 Recap

On May 10th, Weber again made CBA history when he became the new career strikeout leader. During a 5-3 victory over Villanova, Weber recorded strikeout number 133 to pass former Lafayette pitcher Tom Drummond. By the end of the regular season, Weber had pushed the career mark to 150.

The first firing of the season came on May 14th, when Lehigh dismissed Manager Luke Rising. The former Penn star finished with a 47-98 record and the team was 15-33 at the time of his dismissal.


Luke Rising

The race for winning the regions would play deep into the season, but on May 24th, Villanova claimed the Atlantic Region title. It is the Wildcat's third regional title. Two days later, on May 26th, there are only three games left in the regular season. In the New England Region, Brown leads Harvard by a game. Meanwhile, in the Northeast Region, Princeton leads Syracuse and Rutgers by a game. The Tigers last three games are against their rival, Rutgers, in Princeton. In the Wild Card race, Rutgers, Harvard and Syracuse are all tied, with Lafayette a game out.

By the end of the day on May 27th, Brown and Harvard were now tied. Brown is at home against Yale for their final game, while Harvard is at Dartmouth. Princeton still holds on to a one game lead on Syracuse and Rutgers, with their final game at home against the Scarlet Knights. The Orange will face rival Cornell on the road for the season finale. On May 28th, Princeton defeated Rutgers 4-1, clinching the Northeast Region for the fourth time. Meanwhile, Brown and Harvard end the season tied at 36-24. The Bears and Crimson are set for Game #61 on May 29th to determine the New England Region champion.

By the end of the day on the 29th, Brown defeats Harvard 5-3, winning the New England Region for the second time. Harvard claims the wild card and with that, the playoffs are set. Harvard (36-25) will face Villanova (38-22), while Princeton (36-24) travels to face Brown (37-24).

1876 Playoff Series Game 1

Harvard traveled to Villanova for Game 1 of their Collegiate Playoff Series. The defending champs were going to have a tough battle on their hands, as 'Nova was the hottest team going into the post season, winning nine of their last ten games. Senior Eric Weber (36-25, 2.25) is on the hill for the Crimson, while sophomore A.J. Banks (35-22, 1.62) gets the start for the Wildcats.

Harvard got on the board in the 1st inning with two outs. Senior catcher Mike Newland (.348, 0 HR, 29 RBI) singles to right center to get on base. Sophomore shortstop Victor Fraser (.286, 0 HR, 28 RBI) works Banks through nine pitches before hitting the ball in the air to left. But Villanova junior left fielder Justin Scott drops the ball for an error, sending Newland to third. Sophomore left fielder Joel Fletcher (.256, 0 HR, 27 RBI) follows up by hitting the ball into left for a single. Newland scores and Fraser rounds third. Scott throws the ball home, but it isn't in time and Fraser is SAFE!!! Harvard leads 2-0 halfway through the 1st.

Scott tries to redeem himself for his error and hits a line drive into center for a leadoff single. Scott would score later in the inning on a fielder's choice and at the end of the 1st, Harvard leads it 2-1. The score would remain the same until the bottom of the 4th. Villanova junior center fielder Jeremy Brandt (.280, 0 HR, 25 RBI) leads the inning off with a single into left. A sac bunt moves Brandt to second. Senior right fielder Matt Reed (.217, 1 HR, 29 RBI) works Weber for nine pitches before hitting a liner into left. Brandt circles third as Fletcher fields the ball. The throw is made and Brandt is SAFE!!! Game tied, 2-2, after four.

The next inning, 'Nova would take the lead for the first time in the game. Scott leads the inning off with a triple. Two batters later, Scott scores on a deep fly to right, giving the Wildcats a 3-2 lead. Villanova would add to their lead in the 7th, when sophomore second baseman Ken Inserra's RBI double scores sophomore DH Bill Underwood from second. 'Nova leads it, 4-2.

As we go into the 9th, Villanova finds themselves only three outs away from winning the game. Newman gets a lead off single to start the rally for the Crimson. Fraser gets on base and Newman advances to second when senior shortstop Alex Lomeli botches a grounder. Two fly outs later, though, 'Nova has Harvard on the ropes. But Inserra commits two straight errors at second, allowing a run to score and cutting the lead to 4-3. The Crimson send a pinch hitter to the plate, senior Kevin Morgan (.250, 0 HR, 15 RBI). Morgan works a full count before lining the ball into left field!! Two runners score and Harvard takes a 5-4 lead!! Senior third baseman Cameron Baker (.280, 2 HR, 32 RBI) follows up with a bases clearing triple!! Two more runs score and Harvard leads it 7-4. Villanova tries to rally in the bottom of the 9th, scoring a run on two hits, but they fall short. Harvard wins Game 1 by a score of 7-5.

Princeton travels to Brown for their Game 1 match up. Sophomore Jose Munoz (36-34, 1.52) gets the start for the Tigers, while freshman phenom Brian Bohacek (36-23, 2.23) starts for the Bears. Bohacek gets off to a rough start, giving up a lead off triple on his first pitch to senior center fielder Alex Bueno (.268, 0 HR, 32 RBI). Bueno scores when the next batter grounds out to first. Halfway through the 1st, Tigers lead 1-0. Brown answers in the bottom half, though, scoring two runs on two hits and an error. After an inning, the Bears hold a 2-1 lead.

Princeton goes three up, three down to start the 2nd. But then Munoz doesn't return to the mound. Instead, sophomore Brady Thompson walks to the mound. This is Thompson's first playing time this season, as Munoz is pulled by Manager Kevin Haas with a sore elbow. Thompson gets out of the 2nd unscathed, but isn't so lucky in the 3rd, as Brown sophomore Jim Beaudin (.371, 0 HR, 43 RBI) delivers a two RBI triple. At the end of three, Brown leads 4-1.

Brown adds runs in the 4th & 5th innings and cruises to a 6-1 victory. Bohacek holds Princeton to only four hits in the Game 1 win.

1876 Playoff Series Game 2

Villanova traveled to Harvard for Game 2 of their Collegiate Playoff Series. A.J. Banks was back on the mound for the Wildcats, while Eric Weber took the hill for the Crimson. Things looked good for Harvard in the 1st inning. Weber went back to the dugout after a three up, three down start. Senior third baseman Cameron Baker (.280, 2 HR, 32 RBI) led the inning off with a double and later scored to give Harvard an early 1-0 lead.

Villanova would respond, however, in the top of the 2nd inning. Freshman catcher Lew "Blower" Brown (.234, 2 HR, 32 RBI) triples to lead things off. Brown would later score on a ground out and tie the game 1-1. Both pitchers settle in and the score remains the same until the 5th inning. Villanova senior shortstop Alex Lomeli (.204, 0 HR, 19 RBI) singles with two outs in the top of the 5th. Lomeli advances to third on a throwing error on a steal attempt. Junior left fielder Justin "Rhino" Scott (.336, 0 HR, 28 RBI) brings Lomeli home with an RBI single to right. Wildcats lead it, 2-1.

Harvard comes back to tie the game in the bottom of the 6th. Baker reaches base on an error by Lomeli. Baker advances to third on a second error by Lomeli, then scores on right fielder Matt Reed's dropped fly ball in right. At the end of six, the game is tied 2-2. The game remains tied at 2 as we go into the 9th inning. Both starters are still in the game. Brown leads the top of the 9th off with a single past the second baseman. 'Nova junior center fielder Jeremy Brandt lays down a sac bunt, moving Brown to second. Senior first baseman Caleb Vickers then delivers a grounder through the hole and into left. Brown rounds third and scores without a throw to the plate. Villanova leads it, 3-2. Banks returns in the bottom of the 9th with a one run lead. He gets two outs before giving up a single, but then retires the last batter with a ground out to second. Villanova wins and sends the series back to Pennsylvania for Game 3!!!

Brown travels to Princeton for Game 2 of their series. Freshman Brian Bohacek is on the mound again for the Bears. Jose Munoz returns to the mound for the Tigers. Brown gets on the board quickly. With one out in the 1st, sophomore left fielder Chris Achim (.281, 1 HR, 21 RBI) singles and moves to second on a fielding error by Princeton center fielder Alex Bueno. Brown right fielder Jim Beaudin works a full count before lining a base hit into right field. Achim rounds third and beats the throw to the plate!!! Brown leads it, 1-0.

Bueno leads off the bottom of the 1st with an infield single, trying to make amends for his error. Bueno steals second (26 SB, 8 CS) and then moves to third on an error by Brown first baseman Jonathan Christopherson. With two outs and Bueno on third, senior shortstop Max Wieland grounds the ball in the hole on the right side and beats it out for an infield RBI single!! Bueno scores and the game is tied, 1-1.

Brown senior shortstop Jim Schafer (.258, 0 HR, 34 RBI) leads off the top of the 2nd with a line drive over the first baseman's head for a base hit. Schafer steals second and moves to third on a 3-1 ground out. With one out and Schafer 90 feet away, Princeton catcher Bill Needham allows a passed ball. Schafer scores and Brown leads the game, 2-1.

The game then becomes a pitchers duel. Tiger starter Munoz, however, leaves in the 4th inning, as he aggravates his elbow injury. Brady Thompson comes in for Princeton and pitches magnificently, going inning for inning with Bohacek. Brown holds their 2-1 lead as we head into the bottom of the 9th and Bohacek still on the mound. Junior left fielder Chris Gramlich (.266, 0 HR, 23 RBI) leads off with a base hit to left. Gramlich is replaced by pinch runner Ken Gross, who moves to second on a single by first baseman Molly Moore (.265, 0 HR, 22 RBI). Right fielder Steve Henley then grounds weakly back to the pitcher, Bohacek, but an errant throw by the pitcher to first base allows Gross to cross the plate and tie the game, 2-2!!!

The game goes into extra innings after Bohacek settles down to finish the 9th. Nothing happens in the 10th, but Brown scores two runs in the 11th on three hits and two Princeton errors to take the lead, 4-2. Bohacek is still pitching and records two quick outs before allowing a double by Princeton junior second baseman Mike Rexford (.256, 0 HR, 33 RBI). But Bohacek gathers himself and gets the last out to win the game and the series for the Bears. Brown wins 4-2 and takes the series 2-0.

1876 Playoff Series Game 3

Harvard travels back to Villanova for Game 3 of their playoff series. The two time champs are looking to win and move on to see if they can make it three straight championship titles. 'Nova, however, is looking for their first trip to the Collegiate Championship Series.

Eric Weber is on the mound once again for the Crimson, as is A.J. Banks for the Wildcats. Banks throws a three up, three down inning to start things off, but Weber gets off to a rocky start. Left fielder Justin Scott leads things off for Villanova, stroking a single into left. Designated hitter Bill Underwood (.230, 0 HR, 22 RBI) follows up with a double into left center. Scott speeds around third and heads home. The throw is made to the plate and Scott is OUT!!! Underwood advances to third on the throw. The Wildcats can't score the runner, though, as a ground out to third and fly out finish the inning. After one, it's scoreless.

The next two innings are uneventful and the score remains 0-0 until the top of the 4th. Harvard junior right fielder Jeff Black (.235, 0 HR, 26 RBI) leads the inning off with a triple hit deep to left center. Black scores on the next at bat when Banks commits a fielding error, dropping the throw while trying to cover first. Harvard would get two more hits and Villanova would commit two more errors in the inning. By the time there are three outs, Harvard holds a 4-0 lead. The Wildcats would get a run back in the bottom half, as Underwood singles, steals second, advances to third on a passed ball, and scores on Lew Brown's RBI single.

Villanova keeps Harvard from scoring in the 5th and manage to put two more runs on the board in the bottom half of the inning. Senior right fielder Matt Reed (.217, 1 HR, 29 RBI) leads off with a base hit and moves to second on a sac bunt. Alex Lomeli lines the ball into right and Reed beats the throw to the plate. Lomeli moves to second on a Scott ground out to first and scores when Underwood lines the ball into right. The throw is made, but Lomeli is SAFE!!! At the end of five, Harvard's lead is down to 4-3.

'Nova completes their comeback in the 6th inning, as sophomore second baseman Ken Inserra leads off with a single and later scores on a sac fly. After six innings, the game is tied 4-4. After a scoreless inning and a half, Villanova takes the lead in the bottom of the 8th. Inserra reaches base on an error and goes to second when Brown is intentionally walked. A fielder's choice moves Inserra to third and he scores on the second error of the inning. At the end of the 8th, Villanova holds a 5-4 lead!!

Senior second baseman Adam O'Bryant faces Banks to start the 9th and works a full count before beating out an infield hit. O'Bryant moves to second on a sac bunt. Villanova catcher Lew Brown then allows two straight passed balls!! O'Bryant scores and the game is tied 5-5!!! Villanova goes three up, three down in the bottom half of the inning and we're going to extras!! In the top of the 10th with two outs, Harvard sophomore DH Victor Fraser hits the ball to right for what appears to be the third out. But the fielder drops the ball and Fraser ends up on second. Joel Fletcher delivers a liner to right center. Fraser rounds third and the throw is made to the plate......Fraser is SAFE!!! Harvard takes the lead, 6-5!! But the Crimson defense implodes in the bottom half of the 10th, committing three errors. Inserra is once again involved, as he reaches base on an error, advances to second on the second error, moves to third on a passed ball, then scores on the fly ball second out. At the end of the 10th, the game is tied 6-6.

By now, both starters are out of the game, and with fresh arms on the mound, the bats grow cold. Inning after inning, no one can cross the plate. That is, until the 16th inning, when Harvard breaks the tie. Cameron Baker singles to lead the inning off, then steals second. He moves to third on an error, then scores two batters later. But the errors don't stop and by the time Villanova can get three outs recorded, the Crimson have scored four runs on three hits and three errors. Harvard leads 10-6. Three batters and three outs later, Harvard is returning to the championship series, winning this game 10-6 and the series, 2-1.

1876 Collegiate Championship Series, Game 1

As had become his custom, James traveled to attend the Collegiate Championship Series. James was accompanied on his trip to Providence, Rhode Island with his sons, Ephraim, James Jr., and Thomas. Ephraim was currently on the Rutgers team, playing second base. He sat out his first year and didn't see the field as a reserve in his second season. Now 21, and wrapping up his third year of school, he had finally seen the field, albeit only as a defensive replacement in six games, none of which led to a plate appearance. James Jr. was preparing to enter college, but had not yet signed on to play for a school. As for Thomas, he had just turned 16 and still had a couple of years to decide where he wanted to attend college.

James marveled at how the Collegiate Baseball Association had turned out in it's first six years. Harvard had won two straight titles and was looking to win their third in a row. Brown was looking for revenge over last year's title loss. And for the fourth straight year, the champion of the association would be from the New England Region. The series looked to be a great one. With Harvard and Brown playing in the same region, they had already faced each other 14 times, plus they played a 61st game to determine the region winner. In those 15 games, Brown had won nine and Harvard six. The weather looked great for this June game, with the temperature at 69 degrees and the wind blowing gently out to right. James and his sons joined 1880 other fans for Game 1 at Bears Ballpark.

The Crimson wasted no time getting on the board in the 1st inning. Cameron Baker doubled down the third base line to lead off the game. Junior right fielder Jeff Black would reach base on a dropped pop up, with Baker moving to third. Senior catcher Mike Newland (.348, 0 HR, 29 RBI) singles to score Baker and move Black to second. Black attempts to steal third, but an errant throw into left field allows Black to cross the plate. Newland moves to third and tries to score on the next at bat, when Victor Fraser flies out deep to center. But Newland doesn't beat the throw to the plate and is OUT!! At the midpoint of the 1st, Harvard leads 2-0. Brown gets a lead off single in the bottom of the 1st, but it's negated by a double play. At the end of one, the score is still 2-0 Harvard.

The Crimson manage a couple of hits in the 2nd, but can't get them across the plate. The Bears, however, manage three straight hits against Eric Weber. By the end of the 2nd, Brown has scored twice and the game is tied 2-2. Harvard would come back, though, and reclaim their lead in the 3rd inning. Newland leads off the 3rd with a single and Fraser reached on an error. A sac bunt moves the runners to second and third. Newland scores on a subsequent ground out, with Fraser moving to third. Fraser then scores on a passed ball and halfway through the 3rd, Harvard leads it 4-2. After holding Brown scoreless in the bottom half of the inning, the Crimson pick right back up in the 4th. plating two more runs and extending their lead to 6-2. Brown gets the two runs back in the bottom of the 4th and find themselves down 6-4 at the end of the 4th.

But Harvard is torching starting pitcher Brian Bohacek and they chase him in the 5th after scoring three more times. The Crimson add a fourth run in the inning and halfway through the 5th, Harvard leads it 10-4. The Bears' bats grow cold against Weber. The Crimson add a run in the 7th to make it 11-4 and Brown scores a run in the bottom of the 9th. Harvard wins Game 1 by a score of 11-5!! Weber pitches a complete game in the victory.

1876 Collegiate Championship Series, Game 2

James and his three sons traveled to Cambridge, Massachusetts for Game 2 of the Collegiate Championship Series. The youngest son, Thomas, was allowed to hold the championship trophy while they attended the game. James just prayed he didn't drop the thing and break it. Rain was in the forecast for today's game. The temperature was nice, though, at 67 degrees and the wind was blowing in from center field pretty steadily. Brian Bohacek was looking to redeem himself after a poor showing in Game 1, while Eric Weber was looking to close things out at home against the Bears.

1989 people showed up, regardless of the weather conditions, to see the game. After a scoreless 1st inning, Brown gets on the board in the top of the 2nd. With two outs, senior shortstop Jim Schafer singles into right, then moves to second on a passed ball. Sophomore catcher Garrett Ryals (.242, 2 HR, 26 RBI) then lines the ball into left. Schafer rounds third and there is NO throw to the plate. Halfway through the 2nd, Brown leads 1-0. Bohacek and Weber are pitching a gem, and although both teams are getting hits, neither is scoring. The score remains 1-0 Brown as we enter the bottom of the 7th inning.

With one out in the 7th, Harvard manages to get three straight base hits against Bohacek, scoring a run and tying the game. Pinch hitter Kevin Morgan comes in with two outs and doubles to right center, scoring another run and giving the home team Crimson a 2-1 lead!!! The lead doesn't last long, though, as Brown comes out swinging in the top of the 8th. Two base hits and two fielding errors by new shortstop Morgan and Brown plates two runs to take back the lead. The Bears score another later in the inning and at the end of the 8th, Brown leads it 4-2. Harvard manages to get a runner to third in the bottom of the 8th, but can't get him across the plate. Brown goes down in order in the 9th and Harvard leads off the bottom of the 9th with a single. But the base hit is wasted, and three fly outs later, Brown has won Game 2 by the score of 4-2. The series is tied 1-1, as we head back to Providence.

1876 Collegiate Championship Series, Game 3

With the championship trophy in tow, James and his three sons travel to Providence for the third and final game of the Collegiate Championship Series. The skies are clear and the temperature is at 72 degrees. The wind is blowing out to right. Eric Weber and Brian Bohacek are again on the mound for their respective teams, as Harvard and Brown face off for the 18th time this season.

Brown starts the game off with a poor defensive effort, recording three errors while Bohacek only gives up a single hit. But by the time the home team gets a chance to bat, they've already given Harvard a 2-0 advantage. Fortunately for the Bears, the Crimson defense commits two errors of their own. Coupled with a two base hits against Weber, Brown is able to score two runs of their own. At the end of the 1st inning, the score is 2-2. Harvard goes down in order to start the 2nd, but not Brown. The Bears manage three hits in the bottom half of the inning. One run crosses the plate and Brown leads it 3-2 after two innings.

But the Crimson would answer in the top of the 3rd. With one out, Mike Newland singles to left. Victor Fraser then forces Bohacek to throw ten pitches, fouling off five of them. The 10th pitch, though, was the one Fraser turned on, as he hits it down the left field line and over the fence for a two run home run!!! Harvard leads, 4-3. Bohacek gives up another couple of singles, but a throw to the plate to cut down another would be run scorer stops the damage. Brown manages to plate a run in the bottom half of the inning and at the end of three, the game is tied 4-4.

However, Harvard would retake the lead and Fraser would strike again in the 4th inning. After plating one run and taking back the lead, Harvard has two outs and a man on. Fraser lines the ball deep into right center and to the wall. With the ball 405 feet away, Fraser turns on the burners and circles the bases for an inside the park home run!!! Harvard leads 7-4, as Fraser, who didn't hit a home run all season long, has hit two in this final game of the season!! Brown is disheartened and their bats grow cold. The Bears don't manage a hit until the 6th, but can't score a run. The score remains the same as we go to the 9th. Harvard can't score, but Brown leads the bottom of the inning off with a double. Although they score a run, they can't put together a rally. Harvard wins the game, 7-5 and secures their third straight Collegiate Championship Series, 2-1. Fraser (.400, 2 HR, 4 RBI) is named the Series MVP.
