The Hot Stove Breakfast is back with an exciting all-star lineup!
In addition to being internationally recognized sports figures, our very special guests are also distinguished Yale alumni and former teammates. In a 1981 NCAA playoff, Ron Darling's outstanding performance in a legendary pitching match-up earned him the status of having thrown the longest no-hitter in NCAA history, an achievement that stills stands today. Former Yale running back Rich Diana graduated in 1982 as Yale's second all-time leading rusher. Diana was also the lead-off hitter (and Darling's teammate) on Yale's 1981 NCAA Tournament team.
