A Look Around the EIBL

(in predicted order of finish)

1. Harvard

1927 Yankees?

See article above.

2. Princeton

The Tigers return a deep team and an outstanding staff. Their left-handed pitching should carry them most of the season.


3. Dartmouth

The Big Green brings back three EIBL First-Teamers. Riding the arm of pitcher Bob Bennett (according to one scout, a "Ron Darling clone") Dartmouth should be a contender.

4. Pennsylvania

Catcher Ben Breier and battery mates Brian Quinn and Bruce Brasser can carry a Doug Glanville-less Penn team only so far.

5. Army

Fireballer Steve Reich (2.07 ERA) and outfielder Lance Boyce (.381 AVG) will lead the young Cadets.

6. Yale

An inexperienced Eli club will look to Manny Patel (.331 AVG) and pitcher Lincoln Schomer (2.61 ERA) for help.

7. Columbia

The Lions may surprise with speed, but will fall prey to more evolved teams.
