What's a Jasper?

Our unique team name comes from Brother Jasper of Mary, FSC, who served as the prefect of discipline in the 19th century. Br. Jasper brought the then little-known sport of baseball to Manhattan College, served as the team’s first coach and is credited in the Baseball Hall of Fame for creating the 7th inning stretch. Read a Wall Street Journal article about the origins of the Jasper nickname.
