Where Have All The Catamounts Gone? PDF Print E-mail
Written by VT Sports Network Article   
Wednesday, 19 May 2010

On February, 20, 2009, the University of Vermont athletic department decided to cut the baseball and softball programs that had held a rich tradition in the fabric of Vermont due to budgetary cuts deemed essential by the college.  Baseball, specifically, had a long and proud tradition at the University of Vermont as its first season began in 1888 with an 11-1 record under the direction of A.L Kennedy.  On April 17, 1906, the Catamounts played the first ever baseball game at a new ballpark, Centennial Field, when the University of Vermont defeated the University of Maine, 10-4.  Centennial Field has hosted several local area high school and youth games and has been home to many minor league baseball teams in the summer.  Currently it hosts the Vermont Lake Monsters (Single-A Affiliate of the Washington Nationals).
