The University of New Hampshire baseball program started in 1911 and Del Bissonette was their first player to make it to the Major League level.
Two other former major league players attended the University of New Hampshire, but did not play while taking classes. They were Birdie Tebbetts (who did play at Providence College for four years) & Art Kenney. Rich Gale might be the last Wildcat turned major league player as the school stopped its baseball program in 1997.
Did you know that there are five former University of New Hampshire players who made it to the show? Send corrections or updates to Baseball Almanac.
