Bring your questions and enthusiasm to meet Rick Harris and talk some good New England baseball!
With one of the earliest forms of the game being played on its Common, Brown baseball helped define a sport and bring it from the glow of the hometown lights into the national limelight. Since baseball became a serious endeavor at Brown University in the late 1860s, the college has sent forty star alumni to the Major Leagues. Historian Rick Harris recalls Chester Nourse, Harry Pattee, Fred Tenney, Adam P. Carroll and other Brown Bear players who found immortality on Adelaide Park’s hallowed grounds. Experience the best of Brown as Harris recounts remarkable records and stories from over one hundred years of Brown University baseball.
