The Norwich University baseball program started in 1885 and Arlie Pond was their first player to make it to the Major League level. Two months later Ed Doheny (who attended Norwich University in 1895) made it to "the show", but was not a member of the Cadets' baseball team.
Norwich University is the oldest private military college in the United States and is recognized by the United States Department of Defense as the "Birthplace of ROTC" (Reserve Officers' Training Corps).
Did you know that there are two former Norwich University players who made it to the show? Send corrections or updates to Baseball Almanac.
