Did you know?
As the Major League baseball season draws to a close, did you know that Moe Drabowsky ’57, an ace Trinity pitcher under Coach Dan Jessee, signed with the Chicago Cubs at the end of his junior year, and that upon returning to campus in September 1956 for the fall semester, had compiled a 2-4 record in nine games? In the 1966 World Series, Drabowsky, then with the Orioles, set his team on a winning path, striking out a record 11 men as a reliever in the first game against the Dodgers.

Moe Drabowsky passed away earlier this year. For his complete obituary, please see the upcoming fall issue of the Reporter.
