Very quick thoughts

I was at both games. I'll have more later, but let's for starters note that the "infield hit" that led to Dartmouth's go-ahead run was one of the worst calls I've ever seen. Schuyler Mann tagged the guy halfway up the first base line, which--while not the most prudent call on his part instead of throwing to first perhaps--definitely happened. You could hear it, see it, smell it... And Mann fell on the play and wasn't able to recover, but he shouldn't have had to. The umps almost lost this one for Harvard.

That said, Drew Casey's "sac fly" in foul territory should never have been caught by the Dartmouth right fielder, as it assured that a run would score. One of the more questionable decisions I've ever seen made in slow motion.

More on all this later tonight.
