Yale renames baseball field 'Bush Field' to honor former player, George H.W. Bush

Along with the renaming and restoration of the field, the clubhouse will also be renamed to “Jim Neil ’76 Clubhouse” in honor of Jim Neil who was a friend and former teammate of Bill Von Hoene ’76. George H.W. Bush is synonymous with Yale Baseball and Yale Athletics. It is truly fitting that our baseball field be named after one of our greatest student-athletes and 41st U.S. President,” Yale athletic director Victoria M. “Vicky” Chun said in Monday’s release.
