The Benedictine College baseball program started in 1922 and Bob Veale was their first — and only — player to make it to the Major League level.
Bob Veale was a true fastball pitcher and in 1964 he led the National League in strikeouts. He followed the season with a second place finish in 1965 and a third place finish in 1966. He also sixteen batters in a game twice: September 30, 1964 versus the Cincinnati Reds & June 1, 1965 versus the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Benedictine Ravens played baseball from 1922 through 1930, stopped, resumed play in 1956 and are still playing today though they are now known as Benedictine College due to a name change in 1971.
