Hundreds of Johns Hopkins seniors and young alumni
packed the left field upper deck of Camden Yards last
Wednesday night to see the hometown Orioles end a 13-game
losing streak at the hands of the Boston Red Sox.
The event, sponsored by the
Johns Hopkins Alumni
Association, kicked off Senior Week, seven days of fun
leading up to graduation day that this year includes a crab
feast, midnight boat cruise in the Inner Harbor and a trip
to Atlantic City. With finals behind them, the
undergraduates (many Bosox and O's fans among them) reveled
in the tightly fought contest that ended 4-3.
The Alumni Association has hosted a Senior Week event
the past four years, and the Orioles game turnout —
463 attendees — doubled the previous high.
With graduation just days away, The Gazette thought
the baseball outing would provide a fine time for the
seniors to look back on their four-year run at Johns
Hopkins. To see what they had to say, see
"Team '06 in the batter's box,"
in this issue.
