Yale, Silver Bay, and Second Base

“By the way, I have done something worth while. I have built me a bungalow in the primeval forest on Lake George near Silver Bay and any ‘86 man happening that way is entitled to a good sail and, if he be sufficiently youthful, to a position on my ball nine. He may play any of the eight positions outside of second base but that claim I staked out long ago and hold it still.”

— Floyd R. Smith of Brooklyn, N.Y., Vicennial Record (1906), Yale University Class of 1886
