Penn History

This exhibit was created in 2005 by Mary D. McConaghy and by Michael T. Woods, University Archives Summer Research Fellow and an undergraduate at Penn State University, from research compiled by Cappy Gagnon and other members of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR).

Summary

Penn managed to score 17 runs per game but gave up a little bit more (17.75). They finished the season with a .500 record (2-2).
