Jerry Gaube '76
Induction Class of 2006
A native of Binghamton, N.Y., Jerry Gaube played baseball at Binghamton from 1973-76. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in management in 1976.
Gaube was a workhorse pitcher who amassed 252 innings of work in a stellar three-year career that carried him to the professional ranks.
In 1976, he became the first Binghamton athlete to sign a pro contract when he inked a free agent deal with the New York Yankees. Gaube pitched three seasons in their minor league system before becoming a Yankees team scout for 10 years.
At Binghamton, Gaube established school records for career strikeouts and innings pitched. He fanned 266 batters in his career more than one per inning. He holds the single game strikeout record with 16 strikeouts in a seven-inning contest, and also ranks among the top-10 in six different categories. Gaube produced a strikeout-to-walk ratio of more than 3 to 1, issuing just 87 career walks.
In his junior season, Gaube strung together 24 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run and led the entire nation in strikeouts.
As a senior, Gaube was selected first team All-SUNYAC after striking out 100 batters.
As the team's No. 1 starter, Gaube led the Colonials to back-to-back ECAC tournament berths in 1975 and 1976 the first two postseason bids in program history.
