JuCo to the Show: Owen Holt’s Unorthodox Journey to Professional Baseball

Owen Holt took an unorthodox journey to professional baseball, going from Lamar High School in his native Houston to football at Harvard and then dual-enrollment at Harvard and Alvin Community College in Alvin, Texas, where he played baseball.

Senior Perspective: Matt Thomas

It’s a strange thing to have the last 75 games of your collegiate career cancelled. In fact, during my four years, I only played in one-third as many. The Harvard Baseball Team has been such a core part of my identity in college, so I struggled to find direction and purpose when it was taken away. What did it mean to be a Harvard baseball player if we didn’t play any games?
