Princeton University Tour Pays Homage to Bala Cynwyd’s Hobey Baker

Princeton University tour makes stop in Bala Cynwyd to pay respect to Hobey Baker, the famous football and hockey player who studied there in the early 20th century.

Princeton University’s tour across the nation that visits sites of famous alumni makes a stop in Bala Cynwyd to pay respect to Hobey Baker, the celebrated hockey player who studied there at the beginning of last century, writes Mark F. Bernstein for Princeton Alumni Weekly.

Baker, who graduated from Princeton in 1914, is the only person in both the college football and hockey halls of fame.

His mark was so strong that the annual award for the best collegiate hockey player carries his name.

To this day, Baker’s grave at West Laurel Hill Cemetery in Bala Cynwyd still gets many visitors who leave hockey pucks on his headstone in honor of his short but legendary career.
