History: Wilfred "Lefty" Lefebvre coached the Brown Bears Baseball team for 15 years from 1949 - 1964. He led the Bears to eight winning seasons and the only Ivy League Baseball title Brown has ever won in 1952. Before coaching he played for the Boston Red Sox and is one of 31 players in MLB history to hit a Home Run in his first at bat. It was on the first pitch too and the only four-bagger of his career.
