FROM IVY LEAGUE RELEASE
PRINCETON, N.J. — In what could very well be unprecedented, the 2010 Ivy season saw its champion win the title without a single representative on the All-Ivy first-team selections.
The Dartmouth Big Green (Rolfe Division) emerged in a three-game series against host Columbia (Gehrig Division) and will travel to the NCAA as the Ivy League representative. However, unlike a year ago when Bob Whalen’s club won its first championship in 22 years, the boys from Hanover won without any household names. It was a classic case that the sum of the Dartmouth team was stronger than its individual parts. If Dartmouth needed offense, timely hitting and intelligent base running emerged to manufacture runs. If they needed to keep the score low, the pitching staff responded. The combination of opportunistic offense and stout defense was effective, as the Big Green finished the regular season 26-17.

PRINCETON, N.J. — It has been since the late 1980s that Dartmouth hoisted a championship in Baseball. In 1987, the Big Green, led by star pitcher Mike Remlinger, brought the old EIBL championship to the friendly confines of Hanover, N.H. Since then, six other Ivy League teams have won the title as the Big Green waited for another shot at glory. That all changed in 2009 as Bob Whalen’s squad emerged to take the Ivy League Baseball Championship in the rubber match of a three-game series with Bill Walkenbach’s Cornell squad, all the while ending the 22-year drought.
