Michael Johnson ’13 an Ace at Dartmouth (The Boston Globe)
May 23, 2013
Dartmouth pitcher Michael Johnson ’13, who helped propel the Big Green team to the Ivy League Baseball Championship Series, has long challenged himself to be more consistent, The Boston Globe reports.
“Things didn’t go as well as I’d like my freshman and sophomore years—I was still struggling to make adjustments,” Johnson tells the Globe. “But I kept at it, and knew what I had to do to be successful.”
Last summer, the senior put in more time to work on flexibility, and this spring had “a dazzling 7-0 record, a 1.82 earned run average, and 47 strikeouts as the Big Green (32-9) set a program record for wins, and made their fourth straight appearance in the Ivy championship game,” writes the Globe.
Dartmouth’s head baseball coach Bob Whalen tells the newspaper that Johnson “was 4-0 in Ivy games and started every weekend. You really can’t do much better than that.”
