Dartmouth Baseball Going on the Tube
Hanover — Dartmouth College’s Red Rolfe Field at Biondi Park will be ready for its first televised closeup on April 7 when Fox College Sports comes to town to broadcast the Big Green’s Ivy League date with Cornell. It will be the first time the Big Green has had a home game televised.
FCS will showcase the first game of the doubleheader scheduled between the combatants from last May’s Ivy Championship Series. League twinbills normally involved a seven-inning game followed by a nine-inning affair, but the format will be reversed so that the longer contest may be aired.
It will be Dartmouth’s first time on live television since its appearance in the NCAA regionals in 2010, when the Big Green beat Florida International in between losses to Miami and Texas A&M.
Dartmouth (11-1) hosts Siena in its Red Rolfe Field home opener tomorrow afternoon at 3 p.m. The Big Green kicks off Ivy League play this weekend at Penn and Columbia.
