Haverford School Alum John Hickenlooper Starts His Second Term as Colorado Governor
On a brutal 100-degree day, a group of middle-aged men decided it was a good idea to play baseball. The aging diamond warriors wouldn’t have cared if it was raining lava. They were playing.
The occasion was John Baird’s 50th birthday. To celebrate, the then head of Carolina Friends School had rented the Durham Bulls stadium. Once the kids had finished their fun, it was time for the “grownups” to take the field. It was a great day, and Baird remembers it fondly. “We played until they threw us out,” he recalls.
