As part of the Ivy League's 50th anniversary celebration, this week's feature checks in with former Princeton standout Gabe Lewullis.

The win turned out to be bittersweet, as Carril announced his retirement in the locker room.

"It was kind of chaotic," remembers Lewullis. "We get back to the locker room and everyone is high on life. Carril comes in, doesn't say a word, just goes to the chalkboard and writes down: 'I'm retiring.' It was dead silent. We didn't know what to do so we just started clapping for him."

The San Diego Padres have rewarded Chris Young with a new contract.

On Tuesday, less than a day after Young tossed seven scoreless innings in a victory over San Francisco and less than a month since Towers and Babby met, the 27-year-old had agreed to a four-year contract worth $14.5 million, including a includes a $500,000 signing bonus and a $8.5 million club option for 2011.

He'll receive $750,000 this season, $2.5 million in 2008, $4.5 million in 2009 and $6.25 million in 2010. The deal covers his arbitration-eligible years as well as his first year of free agency.

In recruiting news, there's a tiny update on the Jeff Peterson saga and news that Bobby Foley will be playing on the North squad in this Saturday's North/South All-Star game.

�[Peterson] wants to meet with coach Lickliter before making his decision, but Iowa�s definitely still in the picture,� Jones said. �He likes the Iowa campus, players and the AD. He likes Saint Louis because he�s from, Springfield (Mo.), and he�s got the academic thing going for him at Princeton, so he can�t go wrong whichever school he chooses.�
