Put me in, coach


Shortstop Glenn Ambrosius (C’99) tries out the new grass on the field — Murphy Field — during the home opener March 23, which also inaugurated the new baseball stadium. Ambrosius capped off a six-run eighth inning by batting in the winning run on a one-out, bases-loaded single. That run gave the Quakers a 13-12 lead when the game was called on account of darkness, thus giving Penn its first win in its new home. The facility is Penn’s first true baseball stadium, with full dugouts (that’s one of them behind the batter) and even a press box.
