Every year students celebrate Founders Day with a friendly game of Pushball on Macalester’s Old Main Lawn.

The first pushball game in Minnesota was played at Macalester October 15, 1914, according to the Mac Weekly, “Sore muscles, torn clothes and a score of 2 to 1 in favor of the sophomores tells the tale of the first pushball contest ever staged in Minnesota.”
