On July 15, Coach Buddy Teevens ’79, the Robert L. Blackman Head Football Coach, will be joined on the mound by Bob Surace, Princeton’s Charles W. Caldwell Jr. ’25 Head Coach of Football, prior to the start of the 7 p.m. contest between the New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays to promote the showdown between the Big Green and the Tigers at Yankee Stadium in November.

The Nov. 9 game will be the first for Dartmouth at any iteration of the venerated stadium and will be part of the celebration of not only the 150th anniversary of college football, but also the 250th anniversary of the founding of Dartmouth College.

A website has been set up for Big Green and Princeton fans to purchase tickets to the baseball game. The first 200 fans who purchase tickets via the site will receive an exclusive Yankees hat co-branded with the Dartmouth/Princeton commemorative game logo.

The last time Teevens was on a big-league mound came on July 31, 2017, when he tossed the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park prior to a game between the host Boston Red Sox and the Cleveland Indians.
