BEAVER FALLS – While Geneva College may be a small private Christian school, it’s home to a few historical milestones in sports that belie an institution of its size.

It’s Geneva which is the Birthplace of College Basketball. The first basketball game played by a college team took place at Geneva on April 8, 1893 when it defeated a team from the New Brighton YMCA.

Then there’s Cal Hubbard, who played football at Geneva from 1925-27. 

An offensive lineman, Hubbard is the only member of both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Major League Baseball Hall of Fame (he’s also in the College Football Hall of Fame). He played 10 seasons in the NFL, including one season with the Pittsburgh Steelers. His 30-year career as a baseball umpire got him into the MLB Hall of Fame.
