June 9, 1957 - First College World Series win
Editor's Note: This is Part 2 of a four part series over the coming weekend.
- Part I: June 8, 1957: Iowa St 13 - ND 8 (10)
- Part II: June 9, 1957: ND 23 - Northern Colorado 2
- Part III: June 10, 1957: ND 9 - Texas 0
- Part IV: June 11, 1957: Penn St 5 - ND 4
The next day, playing in the losers bracket (double elimination) ND trounced Northern Colorado 23-2. The 21 run margin is still a College World Series record (although it has since been tied). Leading 14-0 after 4 inning of that game, ND coach Jake Kline pulled pitcher Symeon even though Chuck was pitching a no hitter. Jake wanted to save Symeon for the next game against Texas. With the loss, Northern Colorado was eliminated from the tournament.
