MIT Baseball - An Old Photograph

As many of his friends and family know, Anuj played on the MIT varsity baseball team - aptly nicknamed the MIT Engineers. He was on the team for the 1997 and 1998 seasons. Both years, MIT had winning records - overall as well as in their conference (at the time, they played in the Constitution Athletic Conference).

By all accounts, Anuj was an incredibly gifted athlete but making the varsity squad was not going to be easy. According to his fraternity brothers, he basically willed his way onto the team. He loved baseball and practiced hard until he was good enough to get selected. In characteristic fashion, Anuj saw a worthy challenge and did not relent until he had achieved his goal. Balancing a full baseball practice schedule with the grueling academics at MIT was of course no small task. In fact, one of his friends recalled Anuj constantly doing wrist-strengthening exercises in the A.D.P. dorm, even when studying for an electrical engineering test!
