On Saturday Russ Ohlendorf started for the Pirates and Chris Young started for the Padres.
Why would this be news worthy you may ask. Well i will tell you.
This was the first time in history that two Ivy Leaguers started on the same day in the major leagues.

Side note: both pitchers are also from Princeton University and spent time with the Pirates. Ohlendorf is currently with the Pirates and the Pirates drafted Young in the 3rd round in the 2000 draft(Young never pitched for the Pirates in the majors to my knowledge).

Princeton is a well-known sports powerhouse. Only talented and good-looking kids are admitted to that fine University. I give credit to their remarkable parents.
