2016 game will be held Sunday, October 9!
2015 game result: Research defeated Accelerator 21-20. SLAC TODAY story here.
The trophy represents Theory confronting Experiment at Accelerator Park. The home run fence is represented by a beam tree, a traditional symbol of the lab. The beam tree was provided by Bernie Lighthouse (Personnel). The tree surfaces were polished by Reggie Rogers (Central Lab Shop). The base was creatively added by Phil Brunner (Craft Shop). Krefeld's of Redwood City put the pieces together, with room for six decades of results. Following that, another layer will be added to the base a la the Stanley Cup.
This historical data was assembled by reviewing lab periodicals.
Where no scores are available, the winning team has been designated with
a W. It is believed - but not documented - that 1974 was the first
win by Theory and that in 1988 the record was 28-3 in favor of Experiment.
Additions and corrections to this record are appreciated.
Updates to the official record will be made after conferring with appropriate
