The following men, significant to the game of baseball, share in common only their attendance at the University of Notre Dame: The greatest figure of 19th century base ball; the team president of the home team of the first ever major league game (National Association); the youngest man to pitch a minor league no-hitter and win 20 games in the majors; the first ever Native American in the majors; the only man to ever throw a double-header shout out; the creator of the All-Star game; the minor league executive credited with saving the minor leagues during the Great Depression; the sportswriter who became the general manager of the Chicago Cubs; the star of the 1967 Red Sox "Impossible Dream" season; and the hero of Game Seven of the 1997 World Series. These men and many more from Notre Dame-including a total of 72 (thus far) who have gone on to play in the major leagues-made great contributions to our national pastime.
