Nice Brendan Byrne feature...

...up on about the glorious throwback-ness of Brendan Byrne, two-sport athlete:
Regardless of the outcome of the baseball season, Walsh is certain his captain will infuse the team with his signature confidence and work ethic, which he credits Byrne’s upbringing for.

“He might have come out of Milton Academy,” says Walsh. “But I know he has some Dorchester in him. If the team takes on his personality this year, you won’t find a happier guy than me.”

I've always liked Byrne, who had an underrated knack for getting the big hit with men on base when healthy.
Meanwhile, the Crimson's other impact two-sport guy, Brad Unger, is averaging 15 minutes a game for the basketball team and was Harvard's COOP Athlete of the Week for December 11.
