The Boston College baseball program started in 1888 and Dennis Sullivan was their first player to make it to the Major League level. Names that appear on the chart above are in the Boston College Hall of Fame.
A 1920 (first year of publication) issue of the Boston College paper, The Heights, had the following quote about their current mascot from Rev. Edward Mc Laughlin, "It is important that we adopt a mascot to preside at our pow-wows and triumphant feats. And why not the Eagle, symbolic of majesty, power, and freedom? Its natural habitat is the high places. Surely the Heights is made to order for such a selection. Proud would the B.C. man feel to see the B.C. Eagle snatching the trophy of victory from old opponents, their tattered banner clutched in his talons as he flies aloft."
Did you know that there are thirty-six former Boston College players who made it to the show? Send corrections or updates to Baseball Almanac.
