Furman University began playing college baseball in 1891, so long ago that the name of the first Paladins coach is lost to history.

That is sad news.

I saw it on ESPN. I didn't know Furman had a lacrosse team before this announcement which also is getting cut along with baseball.

Wow, we're only beginning to see the long-term impacts created by the Covid-19 pandemic.  The impact on crowd sports can't be understated.


I really hate to see Furman drop a sport dating back to the 19th century.  An unfortunate day indeed.☹️

In a related note, East Carolina announced today it was dropping men's and women's swimming and tennis.
