Friends of UVM Baseball - Bring it Back

Thank you VT Mountaineers

Friends, went to the Vermont Mountaineers game last night in 
Montpelier. What a community, step back in time production the 
Mountaineers staff puts on and a very good "product" on the field. 
Brian Gallagher, General Manager of the Mountaineers, the past 2 years 
has put our BRING IT BACK (previously on the CCTA busses) on the Press 
Box. This year he has placed it on the side of the stadium where 
EVERYONE coming into Recreation Field can see it. Awesome spot. Thanks Brian.

Also thanks Kyle for allowing us to put the BRING IT BACK  banner on 
the outfield fence at Centennial for the high school state 
championships this past weekend. Jim Carter


Vermont baseball high school championships 2015

Friends, what an effort by Kyle Bostwick and the Lake Monsters ground crew and staff in putting on this past weekends Vermont High School Baseball State Championships at Centennial. Just a sensational experience for those high school kids and their fans. Can you imagine being 16 years old and coming up from Ludlow (Black River Academy), being introduced to the crowd, with your picture on the video-tron and playing in your state's high school championship. A lifetime experience. We, the Friends, can be proud that with the support and cooperation of the Lake Monsters, 3 years ago, were instrumental in bringing the championships back to Centennial. Congratulations!


It’s past time for a pastime

Just east of campus sits a piece of history. It’s fair to assume that many students will never visit Centennial Field, let alone understand what it’s meant to generations of students and Vermonters alike.

The University of Vermont Baseball Program has a long, proud tradition dating back to the 1880’s.  During this period, hundreds of Vermont high school graduates have donned the Green and Gold representing not only UVM but also their home state of Vermont.  Baseball has always been one of the most successful athletic programs at UVM.  In 2009, the athletic department cut both Baseball and Softball due to budget concerns.  The following facts will illustrate that this was a poor, short sighted decision.


A concerned group from the UVM community have met and formed a committee to show their passion and and interest in baseball at the University.Their goals and objectives are:

  1. To support the UVM club team as it plays in the New England Club Baseball Association (NECBA)
  2. To support the return of high school baseball state championships to Centennial Field for the 2011 games (Completed).
  3. To keep baseball in the state of Vermont in the public forefront.
  4. To inform alumni, former players, parents and the university community of developments in bringing Division 1 baseball back to UVM.

This committee intends to work with the Athletic Administration to achieve these goals. This group called, "Friends of UVM Baseball" will be meeting on a regular basis and is looking for interested folks to sign on and express ideas and suggestions to the group.

Members of the committee include:
Bruce Bosley, Kyle Bostwick, Jim Carter, Daren Cassani, Barry Chamberland, Jeff Davis, Barry Doolan, Rick Farnham, Jeff Greene, Rick Harrison, Ed Hockenbury, Paul Jarvis, John Luter, Don MacDonald, John Packard, Tom Simon, Mike Talbot and Steve Williams.
