This is terrific, Ronit. Thanks!

It looks like a nice day in Williamstown. Ephs are up, 6-4.

The ESPN game was a lot of fun to watch. The commentators seem to have done their homework on the players. They were going on about how smart you have to be to get into Williams, and seemed particularly delighted that Dan Grossman, (the bespectacled Eph pitcher who is also a chess champ) had the “look” of an academic. Of course, it was meant in humor…

Our scholars are better athletes than other people’s athletes are scholars.

Well said, Mr, Uible, and at least partly demonstrated with an 18-5 win over Tufts.

Congrats to the baseball team!

Rough day for men’s baseball.

First, they lost to Trinity, 8-3, in game 4 of the NESCAC championship…

…and then they started game 5 (their second with Tufts) and were trailing 13-9 when the game was suddenly halted by the “lightening conductor alarm”, and postponed until tomorrow morning, 9am.

Okay, I am a bit on edge about the state of affairs of men’s Varsity baseball, but not enough that I can’t segue here into…

…what the heck is the “lightening conductor alarm”, and how exactly does it work? Does it sound off suddenly and without warning, and cause everything to stop?

Pray tell?

Looks like the Ephs are indeed on the ropes; game has continued and it will take a miraculous comeback to beat Tufts to stay alive. The Ephs have a lot of young talent with many frosh who played well this year, so they should continue to improve.

On another baseball note, another article on the Amherst-Williams anniversary game:
