Baseball Secures Fourth Straight Ivy League Series Victory In Weekend Set Against Yale

Following a come-from-behind victory in a four-run ninth inning on Tuesday against Binghamton, baseball (13-14, 10-5 Ivy) traveled back home for a weekend set against Yale. Having won three of its first four Ivy League series thus far, the Red looked to continue its strong stretch. 

Cornell picked up yet another comeback victory in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader after a seven-run eighth inning brought the Red back into the game, setting up an extra-inning walk-off hit in the tenth. Saturday evening saw Cornell pull away in the later innings to secure an 8-2 win, but Sunday’s matchup went to the Bulldogs in a tight 6-3 battle. “Yale came in hot having won a series against Columbia who is in first place. We knew it would be a challenge but we were ready for it,” said head coach Dan Pepicelli.

WEIRENS | Pants on the Ground: The Saggy Situation of Women’s Athletic Gear at Cornell

It all started with a pair of ill-fitting, droopy sweatpants. Saggy in the wrong places, tight in even worse places — they were unwearable. I gave them to a male friend. They fit him perfectly. My teammates and fellow athletes on other women’s varsity teams encountered similar grievances with these sweatpants, because they were not made for women. They were men’s pants. They simply wouldn’t stay on, and even if they did, they looked awful. 

These notorious sweatpants were mass-issued by Cornell Athletics to their athletes earlier this school year. For background, the Cornell Athletics Department issues a multitude of assorted clothing items to their athletes prior to and throughout their seasons.
