Some out of town visitors were at GBM when it opened at 6 am today. Two were awake after playing softball all night. One wasn’t.

The Carleton wiki ("an unofficial, student-run website") says that Rotblatt:

… is an annual drunken softball game played during Spring Term. It has as many innings as the number of years since Carleton was founded. In recent years, T-shirts for people who arrive at Rotblatt early has become a major CSA budget item, exempted by tradition from rules that prohibit spending on personal property.
