Sport Specific Giving

Thank you for your support!

In 2022, our goal is to further focus on our student-athletes. Because of you, we create winners in the classroom, in athletic competition and in life!

Jay Ingram, son of John Ingram (Old Dominion College pitcher, 1960-1964) has just published a book about former Old Dominion coach Bud Metheny and his early-1960's championship baseball teams (entitled "Monarchs").  While the book's focus is on those teams, it also covers the earlier history of the school and the baseball program, and Bud Metheny personally.  Jay is donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the book to an ODU baseball scholarship that his family started in John's name in 2020. 

The book is not "officially" released until January 10, but it is available now, directly from the author or through the publisher's web site (in time for the holidays!).  The book price is $22.95 plus shipping, and the scholarship will see maximum benefit when books are purchased directly from Jay (and the shipping cost is $5, less than the publisher's $6.95).  If you would like to purchase directly, below are the options (please include ship-to details if using these options, and whether you want it signed):
