Duquesne University's baseball program started in 1888 and Lew Moren was their first player to make it to the Major League level. Names that appear on the chart above in bold print are in the Duquesne University Hall of Fame.
The Duquesne University fight song,The Victory Song (Red and Blue), was written in 1926. It was composed, written and set to music by the Reverend Thomas J. Quigley (class of '27):
We’ll sing hooray for the Red and Blue,
A big hooray for the Red and Blue;
For the flag we love on to victory,
And when the foe is down,
we will raise a mighty shout
And sing hooray for the Red and Blue;
We’re all your sons and daughters true.
Now with all your might, give them
for the grand old Red and Blue.
