Pitching In

The official web page of Dartmouth sports has a piece about Big Green football coach Buddy Teevens throwing out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium prior to the Bronx Bombers game against the Tampa Bay Rays on July 15. Teevens will be joined by Princeton coach Bob Surace as the two help promote the Nov. 9 rematch of last year's Ivy League championship title game at Yankee Stadium. Read the full story HERE.

Former Dartmouth placekicker Foley Schmidt '12 (left) and onetime offensive lineman Rob Bathe '13 are teaming up again in their home state of Minnesota. Schmidt is now CEO of Penny's coffee, which recently opened its newest coffee house in Wayzata. Bathe, who owns Folly Coffee, is supplying the high-end, cold brew bottle product being offered under the Penny's label.

Green Alert Note: Thanks for sharing the photo. BGA readers are encouraged to send along photos and notes about former players. It's fun to let folks know what they are doing after the uniforms come off ;-)
Speaking of former Dartmouth players, another onetime kicker's time in Hanover led to his family serving coffee – and a lot more – across the river in Vermont. Tyler Lavin '05, the only player in Big Green history to boot two 50-plus yard field goals, doesn't get specifically mentioned during Boston TV station WCVB's look at Norwich, Vt., but dad Joe explains to the camera that he ended up buying the historic Norwich Inn after repeated visits to the area while his son was at Dartmouth. Watch the video HERE.

Well heck, as long as we're talking about tourism videos of the Hanover area, WCVB also did a piece centered on the Montshire Museum of Science across the river in Norwich. Watch that HERE. (One clarification. While the mention of the museum starting in a bowling alley is true it wasn't in the current building. Rather it was in the old bowling alley on the Lyme Road in Hanover.)
