Tigers in San Diego

Not since 1912 had Princeton had three or more Tigers playing Major League Baseball until early September of 2008 when Will Venable joined Chris Young and Ross Ohlendorf in the Major Leagues. This weekend all three find themselves in Southern California as the Pittsburgh Pirates conclude the season against the San Diego Padres.

It is unlikely that all three will appear in the same game, as Young is scheduled to pitch on Saturday and Ohlendorf on Sunday, while Venable will likely play all three games in centerfield. Thanks to the Padres and photographer Chris Hardy for this picture taken during batting practice prior to Friday night’s game.
