Monarchs: Bud Metheny, Old Dominion Baseball, and the Foundational 1960s Championship Teams

by Jay Ingram

As one of the premier institutions of higher learning in the state of Virginia, Norfolk’s Old Dominion University has an interesting and storied past. With humble beginnings as a small commuter college with fewer students than the surrounding high schools, one iconic baseball coach and his star pupils helped bring national name recognition to “Old Dominion College” and establish the school’s independent identity. Monarchs tells the story of how Coach Bud Metheny built a baseball powerhouse out of almost exclusively local talent, culminating in a 1964 East Region NCAA championship earned in baseball’s most revered venue—New York’s Yankee Stadium.
