Pair of Tiger Tales
By stern on Jul 08, 2007
Earlier this week, another Tiger tale emanated from another post-graduate first: Padres pitcher Chris Young was voted to the MLB All-Star Game, riding a wave of fan interest, local support, and mlb.com's inclusion of on-line and SMS tallies. Young is the first Princetonian to make an All-Star team, and only the sixth Ivy League graduate to be given the recognition. He joins some heady company, as the first Ivy All-Star did his undergrad work at Columbia, then went across the East River to play for the Yankees: Lou Gehrig.
