The Northeast-10 Conference enters its 31st year as there is little surprise why the Northeast-10 Conference has continued to grow stronger year by year since it’s inception and now stands as a model conference of NCAA Division II. The conference was built from the ground up with strong cornerstones and a vision of becoming the premier Division II NCAA athletic conference in the nation. A quick look around the league today will tell even the casual observer that the NE-10 has done so.

Eight months later, at the Pleasant Valley Country Club in Springfield, Mass., the league was publicly announced.

Located at the North Campus Athletic Complex, overlooking the city of New Haven, Vieira Field provides plenty of seating for fans along first base, as well as team dugouts, bullpens, and press box facilities behind home plate. The field is located between Ralph F. DellaCamera Stadium and the University’s softball field. The residential neighborhood venue provides a comfortable setting for families to enjoy the highly successful UNH program, and the field is a convenient walking distance to the main campus.

Vieira Stadium Renovation Plan The University of New Haven is embarking on a major field renovation campaign. Vieira Field already had its entire infield playing surface replaced prior to the 2008 season. With help from alumni and friends of the program, we hope to continue renovations at Vieira Field (baseball). A top-notch facility will help us recruit strong student-athletes, showcase our past successes and achieve new ones. Included in the renovations: Sunken concrete dugouts with double-tier benches, 200 stadium seats behind the backstop, additional spectator seating, padded wall bearing the Charger logo behind home plate. Interested in becoming a supporter? Contact head baseball coach Chris Celano at (203) 932-7468. Artist renderings of the upgraded Vieira Stadium pictured above.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF CHARGER BASEBALL: 49 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE ... AND COUNTING Compiling a complete history of University of New Haven Baseball would take far more than one page, and the countless stories could go on and on, so we’ll call this a “Brief History” of Charger Baseball.

UNH Baseball: By The Numbers Seasons: 49 (1963 - 2011) All-Time Record: 1,258 - 421 - 6 (1,685) Winning Percentage: 74.8% Regional Appearances: 32 (27 NCAA, 5 NAIA) World Series Berths: 17 (15 NCAA, 2 NAIA) Postseason Wins: 81 (2nd all-time) Consec. Winning Seasons: 42 (1963-2004) Winning Seasons Overall: 47 All-American Awards: 39 All-Region Awards: 79

The University of New Haven has one of the most storied baseball programs in the history of NCAA Division II. Ask any fan of UNH Baseball, or really any fan of a team in the Northeast, and they’ll tell you that a discussion of Charger Baseball begins and ends with one man - legendary former head coach Frank “Porky” Vieira. The New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) and the East Coast Conference (ECC). Vieira is the true “father” of the UNH Baseball program, and until the 2007 season, the only Over the program’s first 45 seasons, UNH coach the school had ever known. He founded Baseball has made 31 Regional Tournament the program in 1963. Under Vieira, who retired appearances (26 NCAA, 5 NAIA) and earned 17 following the 2006 season, the UNH baseball College World Series berths (15 NCAA, 2 NAIA). program posted an all-time record of 1,127-324- UNH has 81 postseason wins in all, the third6 in 44 seasons. That included a string of 42 most of any school in NCAA Division II history, straight winning seasons from 1963 to 2004, and advanced to the College World Series a and 43 winning seasons overall. school-record seven consecutive times from 1984 to 1990. The team’s best finishes came No matter how you break down the numbers, as NCAA Runners-Up in 1980 and 1989, when Vieira is one of the all-time greatest in the college game.

UNH fell to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, which later had its participation vacated due to ineligible players. Coach Vieira is the first one to tell you that a great coach can’t do anything without great players - and UNH has certainly had its share. UNH has produced over 80 players who have gone on to play professional baseball, including 10 players who made it to Major League Baseball. Notably, UNH is one of only 14 schools to have produced a player that would later go on to win the Major League Baseball Cy Young Award. Former Charger great Steve Bedrosian went on to earn the NL Cy Young award while a member of the Philadelphia Phillies in 1987, saving 40 of the team’s 80 wins that season. Cameron Drew was the program’s first-ever First Round Draft Pick with his selection in 1985. Dave Wallace has been a respected professional coach since 1981, and won a World Series as pitching coach with the Boston Red Sox in 2004. This list goes on and on. (For a more complete list of players in the pros, see the “Chargers in the Pros” page in the back of this guide) Even some of those players who didn’t go on to play professionally had standout careers on the diamond for UNH. Further evidence of the Chargers’ contributions to the sport can be found in the NCAA Record Book, where you’ll see the words “New Haven” 34 times among the various team and individual records.

At the start of the 2012 season, he was second among all-time Division II coaches with a career winning percentage of .776, and fourth among D-II coaches in total victories. “Coach V” also ranks eighth on the all-time, all-division coaching records list in terms of winning percentage and 34th in total wins. He is one of only 35 coaches to ever win at least 1,100 games at any division of college baseball. Vieira’s achievements have not gone unrecognized by the media or his peers. Featured in several publications including Sports Illustrated, he received the “Gold Key” from the Connecticut Sports Writers Association and was named Coach of the Year numerous Over 250 people, including 45 former players and coaches, turned out on December 8, 2006 to times for the NCAA Northeast Region as well as help send Coach Vieira off into retirement with a “Toast & Roast” Celebration.

UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION Steven H. Kaplan, Ph.D., University President S teve n H . Ka p l a n , P h . D . , became the sixth president of the University of New Haven (UNH) on July 1, 2004. Dr. Kaplan joined a nearly 85-yearold institution dedicated to experiential education. With enrollment of over 5,200 undergraduate and graduate students representing more than 35 states and some 45 countries, UNH has several nationally ranked programs in a number of majors in business, engineering, public safety, and the liberal arts and sciences. Dr. Kaplan was presented to the community in March 2004 by then Board of Governors Chairman Robert Alvine, who characterized the president-designate as energetic, well-liked and respected, focused and remarkably effective in mobilizing an institution’s resources to achieve target results. His highest priorities are strengthening the University’s endowment, growing enrollment to optimum levels, and engendering an atmosphere for excellence among all constituencies. He has focused on establishing strong relationships with members and organizations within UNH’s circle of constituents – faculty, students, administrators, alumni, friends, campus neighbors and leaders of Connecticut’s business and public service communities. As president, he oversees a faculty of nearly 400, 530 staff, and an annual budget of $84 million.

Previously, Dr. Kaplan was chancellor and professor of English at the University of Virginia’s College at Wise, Virginia, the only four-year branch campus of the University of Virginia and one of the nation’s best public colleges, according to U. S. News & World Report. Dr. Kaplan began his teaching career in 1982 as an Instructor of English at the University of Maryland, European Division. From 1985-1989, he served as Visiting Lecturer in American Studies at Eberhard-Karls Universitat, Tübingen, Germany – one of the oldest and most highly regarded universities in Europe. After completing his doctoral studies at Eberhard-Karls Universität, he returned to the U.S. to teach English at the University of Southern Colorado. Within three years, he was made department chair, serving in that capacity for two years before becoming Director of the Center for International Studies. Dr. Kaplan also served as dean of Arts and Humanities at SUNY College at Buffalo, an institution with about 11,000 students; and as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Butler University, an independent comprehensive institution of five colleges and 3,400 students, which is ranked by U. S. News & World Report as one of the top regional universities in the Midwest. He completed his Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at Eberhard-Karls Universität in Germany and holds the Master of Arts degree (with a concentration in philosophy, German, and English), also from Eberhard-Karls Universitat. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Los Angeles.

Dr. Kaplan is the author of a book on American translations of the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke, a number of scholarly essays, a book on Tim O’Brien’s fiction with the University of South Carolina Press, and an anthology of international war stories with the University Press of Colorado. Dr. Kaplan and his wife, Anemone Schweizer-Kaplan, are both ardent opera buffs and love to ballroom dance, hike, and downhill ski. They share a great love for the visual and performing arts and have traveled to over twentyfive countries in twenty-five years, including Tanzania where they hiked up Mt. Kilimanjaro. They have a son and three daughters Dr. Kaplan grew up in Chicago, the son of a shoe store owner and an actress-comedienne. He said his stepfather, Irving Glovin, taught him to love ideas and appreciate the contributions we all need to make to good causes. He was a good friend of Oskar Schindler, was instrumental in getting the story out in book and film form (associate producer of the film), and is the President of the Oskar Schindler Humanitarian Foundation. Dr. Kaplan also serves on the board of the foundation. His wife grew up in Southwest Germany. She holds the equivalent of an American M.A. in Secondary Education and taught at a German high school.

Among her numerous honors, Chin was named the NACWAA NCAA Division II Administrator of the Year in 2009 after serving as the D-II Management Council Chair. In 2007, the Connecticut Sportswriters’ Alliance presented Chin with the Gold Key Award, the state’s top sporting honor which recognizes significant contributions to athletics in the State of Connecticut. Chin won the NACDA/Continental Airlines Athletic Director of the Year for the Northeast Region in 1998-99 and was awarded the NACWAA Josten’s District I Administrator of the Year Award in 1997. Chin won the National Association for Girls and Women in Sports Presidential Award in March 1997 and was the Connecticut Post Woman of the Year in 1993. Chin has also earned the U.S. Volleyball Association Meritorious Service Award and the YMCA Women in Leadership Award.

UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAVEN DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS MISSION STATEMENT The mission of the department of intercollegiate athletics is to support the mission of the university and to integrate intercollegiate athletics into higher education so that the educational experience of the student-athlete is paramount. The department will provide growth opportunities to achieve in a nationally competitive intercollegiate program that attracts, nurtures and graduates student-athletes who under the guidance of a quality staff, represent the University of New Haven with character and integrity while achieving academic excellence, serving the community and pursuing excellence in their respective sports. DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS PHILOSOPHY Higher education has lasting importance on an individual’s future success. For this reason, the emphasis for the student-athlete experience at the University of New Haven is a comprehensive program of learning and development in a personal setting. As an NCAA Division II program, our approach provides growth opportunities through academic achievement, learning in high-level athletic competition and development of positive societal attitudes in service to community. The balance and integration of these different areas of learning opportunity provide our student-athletes a path to graduation while cultivating a variety of skills and knowledge for life ahead. The University of New Haven seeks to provide the world with leaders who can make a positive difference in a global society. Studentathletes are afforded unique opportunities for leadership because of the visibility provided through athletics competition. UNH’s intercollegiate program provides opportunities for its student-athletes to develop moral virtues, such as courage, self-confidence, and integrity and to learn communication and teamwork skills associated with outstanding leadership. Thus the Department of Athletics helps the University satisfy its primary aspiration, which is to prepare students to lead purposeful and fulfilling lives in a global society through experiential, collaborative, and discovery-based learning. The Department of Athletics is committed to delivering intercollegiate athletics programs that are consistent with the University’s mission and generates the trust and support of its various constituencies. The goal of the department is to field sports teams that compete successfully against other NCAA Division II teams while upholding the academic standards of the University of New Haven. The department is also committed to conducting its programs in strict adherence to the policies, rules and regulations set by the University’s administration, Board of Governors, the NCAA and the Northeast-10 Conference. Through its programs, the department gives its student-athletes of different genders, races, religions, national origins and sexual orientation opportunities to participate in intercollegiate competition. The intercollegiate program will function free of discrimination with a University commitment to the adherence to Title IX and the Office of Civil Rights guidelines. A major goal of the Department of Athletics is to help student-athletes realize the full potential of their athletic abilities while also increasing their intellectual capabilities and providing them a meaningful opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree. The department will not compromise its commitment to educate and graduate its student-athletes. Department of Athletics personnel are expected to represent the University in a manner consistent with UNH’s principles and values. All personnel are expected to perform their responsibilities with the highest standards of integrity, ethical behavior and sportsmanship at all times. Coaches and staff are expected to treat student-athletes fairly and with respect and to facilitate leadership that helps them mature physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. DEPARTMENT OF ATHLETICS HIGHLIGHTS • The UNH women’s volleyball team has reached the NCAA Sweet 16 seventeen times since 1983, and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight 11 times, including an Elite Eight appearance in 2008. • Baseball has consistently been ranked as one of the winningest Division II programs in NCAA history. Baseball Coach Emeritus Frank “Porky” Vieira retired after the 2006 season as Division II’s all-time winningest coach by percentage, and logged 1,127 career victories. The team has appeared in 17 College World Series and made 32 Regional appearances.

That title-game appearance made UNH the only football team in the State of Connecticut to ever compete for a national title and the smallest school (in terms of enrollment) to compete for an NCAA Championship. • Women’s track and field has produced arguably the most successful individual student-athlete in Charger history. Shannon Gagne won five national championships during the 2010-11 academic year and helped bring the program a fourth place finish at the 2011 National Championship meet. • Tailback Roger Graham won the 1993 Harlon Hill Trophy as the top Division II Football Player in the nation. • Men’s Soccer reached the NCAA finals in 1976 and finished third in 1977.
