Administrative History

Baseball, although one of the oldest team’s sports played at Drexel, along with Basketball and Football, was not officially supported by the University until the 1924 team coached by Harry O’Brien. During the team’s early years, it would develop long-standing rivalries with the University of Pennsylvania, Haverford (both 1924), Delaware, Ursinus, St. Joseph’s (1925), Swarthmore (1926), Lehigh (1927) and Widener (1928). In 1943, because of World War II, the baseball team, like other school sports, would suspend operation for that year. The baseball team returned the following year, and continue until the university suddenly terminated the sport in 2003. During that time, it was originally a member of the Middle Atlantic Conference, later named the East Coast Conference, until 1992, when it joined the North Atlantic Conference. Within a year of joining the NAC, Drexel’s baseball squad would put together a ‘winning’ season, entering the Conference Tournament both that year (1993) and the following season (1994), eventually reaching the semifinals. Baseball returned to Drexel in the fall of 2006, as a club sport.
