My post should probably be ignored my answer to medfords question was definitely wrong. His question was about the 50s and 60s and I thought it would be funny to name a school founded in 1970 and move on like it was correct. Apparently I was wrong.

Oh and I don't know the answer to my question.

I believe it's the Delaware River in New Jersey. But I'll wait to ask a question til I find out if that's correct.

As the story goes, Blackburne later was fishing on a Delaware River tributary in New Jersey when he scooped up some mud from the creek. He tried it out on a shiny new ball -- an experiment that would alter the course of our National Pastime.

That was one of those memories hiding dormant in my mind for twenty-something years.

On the Pete Rose theme, which relief pitcher got him out on his last at-bat to end his hitting streak at 44 games?

Rose disappointed me by complaining that the guy pitched him like it was the 7th game of the World Series. Good grief! This was coming from a guy who sprinted to first on a walk.
