Oldtime Game History

Having attended the Oldtime Baseball game since he was a small child, Cambridge native Danny Nugent always wanted to be a participant. Not knowing how to make it happen, he took matters into his own hands: He wrote a letter. Selected to be in the 2005 Game following his graduation from Cambridge Rindge & Latin School, Nugent emerged as co-MVP when he hit a gamewinning double off the left-field fence in the bottom of the ninth inning. Chris Lambert, one of three veterans of the Oldtime Baseball Game to be selected in the first round of Major League Baseball’s annual draft (St. Louis Cardinals, 2004), wore this uniform in 2003. In was worn in 2000 by Jeff Mackor of Boston College, who in 2002 was selected in the 15th round by the Houston Astros. Harvard University infielder Josh Klimkiewicz did the honors in 2004; he later played professionally for the El Paso Diablos. In 2006 it was worn by Roxbury Latin High School pitcher Jack McGeary, who the next year was selected in the sixth round by the Washington Nationals.

Matt Marvin, Williams College (’98); Marc DesRoches, Providence College (’99); Matt Lederhos, Boston College (’01); Matt McEvoy, Holy Cross (’01); Sam Shaughnessy, Boston College (’07-08); Mike Del Ponte, Bryant University (’09); Cary McConnell, coach (’10); Dan Walsh, Bryant University (’11); Mike Gambino, Boston College (coach) (’14).
