The smell of fresh cut grass, the crack of the bat, the whir of cars rushing down I-76. Yes Penn baseball season is almost upon us and the boys from Meiklejohn have put together this slick video to get you ready:
The short was directed by program alum Jeremy Maas, who graduated last spring. Maas and the Quakers finished 19-21 overall, going 10-10 in Ivy play, second in the Gehrig division. They begin their season Friday against Stetson as part of the Bright House Invitational in DeLand, Fla.
We just want someone to please explain what (+1) means.
The Quakers were in good spirits after finally getting back in the win column on Friday night at Brown. Unfortunately Brown doesn't have a very organized postgame interview set-up, so these were just taken in the hallway. Pardon the poor acoustics and slightly awkward close-ups.
See Jack Eggleston and Tyler Bernardini after the jump.
It was a very solid overall effort by the Quakers tonight en route to a 66-58 win over Yale and a 1-0 start to the Ivy schedule. Below, you've got Jerome Allen (left), Jack Eggleston (middle) and Miles Cartwright (right). And below that, Yale coach James Jones.
It was my first game ever watching Penn basketball purely as a fan. Nevertheless, Penn athletic communications let me film the post-game press conferences, even wearing my Red and Blue Crew t-shirt. At top, just Jerome Allen. In the middle, Zack Rosen and Fran Dougherty. At the bottom, Drexel coach Bruiser Flint, guard Derrick Thomas (middle) and guard Chris Fouch (left).
