Chestnut Hill, Mass. - Former Boston College baseball player Jeff Waldron `99 is one of nine student-athletes in a class of 10 members that will be inducted in the BC Varsity Club Hall of Fame in the fall.
The honorees will be inducted in a ceremony on Friday, Oct. 17 at Conte Forum. They will also be recognized at halftime of the Eagles' football game against Clemson on Saturday, Oct. 18.
Waldron spent his time at Pellagrini Diamond behind the plate, as the starting catcher for the Eagles. A career .341 hitter, he recorded 198 hits, including 42 doubles and 18 home runs, in his four years at the Heights.
