My Yale friends remain my closest and most special associates.” (’66) “I didn't realize the significance and clout of a Yale degree until after I had g aduated. The Yale reputation graduated. e a e eputat o sepa separates you from the pack when searching for a job ates you f o t e pac e sea c g fo a job and gives you credibility before walking into an interview or meeting. To put it bluntly: It undoubtedly opens up doors for you. I am grateful to Coach Stuper and the Yale baseball program for not only providing me with the opportunity to play D1 baseball but also for opening up a network of contacts for me that will prove to be valuable as my professional career evolves.” (’06) “Yale sparked my interest in exploration‐‐been to 140+ countries with my work on attitudes and business practices around the globe. Saw all star games in Korea, Japan; b‐ball games in Mexico City and Finland, Netherlands, and played baseball in Australia.” (Yale ’73) “After obtaining a degree from Yale and playing baseball for 4 years, I realized that I can essentially do anything I want to do. I've completed my first year as a law clerk for a firm specializing in large cases regarding business litigation and employment. The way that I landed the job was similar to that of many Yalies, networking within the Yale community. I would tell every recruit to attend Yale because it is an experience pp f ((Yale Class of 2008) f ) like no other and the opportunities after Yale are endless.” “While I have done many things since Yale in which I take great pride, the one “Whil Ih d thi i Y l i hi h I t k t id th thing that consistently opens doors, starts conversations and generally leads people to regard me as someone of substance is the fact that I went to Yale.” (Class of ’93) “I will say that my first job at Ropes & Gray was largely due to Yale Baseball. My grades were not quite at the level they needed to be for that My grades were not quite at the level they needed to be for that firm, but the on‐campus interviewer at Duke was a former Yale Baseball Alum, Brien O'Connor. Brien went on to be a great mentor and friend of mine. To this day I am convinced that Yale baseball opened that door.” “My experience at Yale is without a question the single most influential of my life. I would say that every single career opportunity I have had since graduating has been a direct result of my having gone to Yale. I was able to change careers on a dime, without any experience whatsoever, simply because being a Yale graduate implies some level of competence and ability (though in my case I'm not so sure of that!). The people you meet, the experiences you have, and the credibility you carry will certainly open doors that are closed to others.” (’00) “The Yale Endowment Fund has invested with my firm, and while this relationship was earned in the marketplace, the initial introduction resulted from Yale network. While I would like to think I can take credit for most of my accomplishments, my Yale affiliation has no doubt contributed to my being invited to join non–profit boards and participate in various business ventures, and elevated my social standing.” ‘77 “Yale was a privilege and I am thankful each day for the good fortune of having attended the finest college in America.” ‘80 “During my senior year at Yale I came in contact with an Alumnus who supports the Yale Baseball program who has since become my mentor. He told me at the time that Yale will open doors for you in the future that you don't even know exist. Over the last couple of years, I have learned that the pride each member of the Yale community feels results in a sense of loyalty and desire to help out fellow Yale men and women. It was the Yale Athletics Network that was responsible for me getting my internship after my Junior year and for me getting my current job. The Alumni network generously offers their time and advice for careers and for life whether it be on the phone or over dinner at the Yale club. It is a truly valuable resource and a community I am glad to be a part of.” –Yale 2008 “A A Yale degree opens doors and many windows, too!! Yale degree opens doors and many windows too!!” ((’86) 86) “One of my Yale classmates, a four‐year football starter, arranged for an interview with a successful law firm in New Orleans, LA. Based on both our Yale degrees, I have worked there for nearly four years. It is doubtful that I would have even received an interview without my Yale connections given that I was not a native of Louisiana.” ‘02 “Yale Baseball is a common bond shared by the most amazing friends I have in my life. y gf y f Being part of a team gp f comprised of the p f best and brightest has g allowed me to learn and excel both on the baseball field and in everyday life. After my baseball career, I have never encountered trouble finding contacts in any industry as Yale Baseball alumi and Yale Baseball fans are diverse in nature, yet all willing to share experiences that will help you to gain status in life.” (Yale Class of ’08) “A A Yale degree is a pedigree and immediately puts an exclamation point Yale degree is a pedigree and immediately puts an exclamation point on your resume.” (Yale ’05) “None of whatever I have achieved since college would have been available to me without being part of the Yale Community and particularly the Baseball program. An inner city Chicago boy and public school product, p g y g y p p baseball is what exposed me to Yale and once in the School, aided my ability to balance multiple priorities (school and Division I baseball then; work and family now). The tight knit Yale community brings a student/athlete close to their peers (not only those participating in sports) and those relationships have survived the test of time. I still maintain close friendships with the majority of my Yale friends j i f Y l f i d (met both on and off the athletic field), some of ( b h d ff h hl i fi ld) f whom have very visible careers (such as Attorney General for the State of Maryland, a Tony Award recognized playwright and a Federal Judge) while others have moved into less visible, but critical professions such as teaching and other community service avocations. To this day, at the age of 47, I continue to play baseball on a competitive level (over 30 league) mainly continue to play baseball on a competitive level (over 30 league) mainly because of the enjoyment that the sport brought me all through Yale.” (Class of 1985) “I have no question that both Yale and baseball significantly contributed to the success (good fortune) that I have had since graduation.” (Yale ’63) THIS IS… CRAIG BRESLOW YALE ‘02 CURRENT MLB PITCHER OAKLAND A’S FOUNDER: STRIKE 3 FOUNDATION For pediatric cancer research For more information regardingâ€Ś regarding Academics & Learning at Yale Residential Life & Living at Yale Student Pursuits Yale Voices: Blogs and Videos The Application Process Advice for Prospective Students Opportunities to Visit Yale Financial Aid Please Visit: http://admissions.yale.edu/home http://admissions yale edu/home Recruits interested in further pursuing the opportunities within the Yale Baseball Program should contact Assistant Coach/ Recruiting Coordinator Tucker Frawley at email@example.com with the following information… ACADEMIC INFORMATION * MOST RECENT TRANSCRIPT * GPA & CLASS RANK * LIST OF COMPLETED & SCHEDULED AP CLASSES * AP TEST SCORES * SAT/ SAT II/ ACT SCORES * GUIDANCE COUNSELOR & TEACHER RECOMMENDATIONS RECRUITING VIDEOS * PRACTICE FOOTAGE: BP, FUNGOS,BULLPEN, ETC. * GAME FILM: LIVE AT-BATS; LIVE GAME FOOTAGE COACHING CONTACTS * HIGH SCHOOL COACH CELL # AND EMAIL ADRESS * SUMMER COACH CELL # AND EMAIL ADDRESS Go bulldogs!!!
