1958  Baseball Team

Four years after their previous appearance in the College World Series, the 1958 Lafayette baseball team returned, qualifying via wins over Penn State and NYU in the District 2 Playoffs. That team compiled a 19-10 record before losing to Colorado State and Western Michigan in Omaha. The team opened with wins in 10 of its first 12 games and was led offensively by Lafayette's career batting average leader, shortstop and team captain Tom Morgan (.405 career) and Bob Kessler (.396 career).
