Donald  Lordan

Don Lordan, an All-League First teamer, led the Leopards to the 1965 College World where they faced Arizona State. During the 1965 season, Lordan racked-up the third most wins in a single season (9) in 93.2 innings pitched with 66 strikeouts. His record of 93.2 innings pitched still stands as the second-most in a single season and his record for strikeouts is tied for sixth-most. Lordan was also a top-notch hitter, and he led his team with a .404 batting average during the 1965 season.

On April 4, 1963, Lordan was one of three pitchers who combined for a no-hitter in a game against Muhlenberg. During the match, which was the first game he ever pitched, he had four strikeouts.

After graduating from Lafayette in 1965, Don signed with the Milwaukee Braves. He then went on to serve in the National Guard.

Lordan ran a sporting goods store and has been working in the sports memorabilia business for over twenty-eight years. He has also worked with the All American Baseball Academy in Warrington, Pa. organizing baseball camps and clinics for more than 48 years.

Lordan has one daughter, Kady Lynn.
