Sophomore slugger Zak Farkes connects for a deep drive during Harvard’s 12-6 season-finale loss against visiting Northeastern on May 5. Despite the team’s setback, Farkes closed out the season with gusto, blasting four homers in two outings against Dartmouth May 1-2 to earn Ivy League Player of the Week honors and break Harvard’s single-season and career home run records. The Boston native hit 14 homers on the season to give him 22 in his two-year Harvard career. The Crimson, meanwhile, ends its 2004 campaign at 21-18-1 (13-7 Ivy).
