History[edit]

The year 1949 is considered the official inaugural season of U.B. varsity baseball. But baseball’s start at U.B. goes back much further. There are newspaper accounts of a U.B. team from as early as 1894. From 1914–1920, several good U.B. teams took to the diamond playing some of the best teams in the country including Pitt, Army, Michigan State and Syracuse.[3]
