History

The most famous member of the Columbia baseball team was Lou Gehrig. Gehrig attended Columbia between 1921 and 1923, intending to become an engineer. Known as "Columbia Lou," Gehrig played both baseball and football. Gehrig drew attention for his record-breaking 400-foot home runs and, as a pitcher, his 17-game strikeout streak in 1923. Gehrig signed with the Yankees in his sophomore year, leaving college for a lucrative paycheck, but remained an avid fan of Columbia sports for the remainder of his life.[3]

Major League Baseball

Columbia has had 27 Major League Baseball Draft selections since the draft began in 1965.[4]
