Edwin Fager

Ed Fager, an ace on the Lafayette pitching staff from 1911 through 1913, won more than 25 games in his college career while establishing himself as possibly the Leopards' best strikeout pitcher of all time.


Twice he fanned 20 batters in a nine inning game, a school record that still stands. His no-hit, no-run performance in a 10-0 win over Stevens Institute as a senior is only one of many pitching gems for this Harrisburg, PA native. His 10-9 decision against Pennsylvania in his final appearance is "perhaps the most remarkable game every played on March Field," wrote D.L. Reeves of Easton. "No more spectacular climax could have been staged." Fager came to bat in the bottom of the ninth with two outs and ripped a base hit that scored the winning run from second base. "Fager was carried off the field amid the tolling of the bell on Old South College," Reeves continued. The hard-throwing right-hander averaged more than eight strikeouts a game over his career and struck out 10 or more men at least nine times.
