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.
