Mason baseball travels to Williamsburg for weekend series with William & Mary

When the George Mason baseball team steps onto the field of Plumeri Park in Williamsburg on Friday, it’ll look to accomplish something they haven’t done since March 17 — win a three-game series against a Colonial Athletic Association rival.

Their last CAA series victory came against Northeastern in Fairfax. This time, the opponent is the William & Mary Tribe. With a record of 26-16, 9-6 in the CAA, the Tribe sits at third in the conference. Mason, meanwhile, is last in the conference with an overall record of 14-29, 5-16 in the CAA.

No. 25 UNCW closes out Mason baseball with three-game sweep

It was little league day at Spuhler Field in Fairfax. The crowd was made up mostly of parents and children clad in various colors of little league teams from all over the Northern Va. region. The matchup on the field was between the Mason Patriots and the UNC Wilmington Seahawks.

For the second straight day, it was a matchup of men against boys as UNCW easily beat Mason, 10-2.

UNCW sprung out of the gate quickly, scoring three runs in the first and four more in the second after Mason scored once in the bottom of the first.

No. 25 UNCW outhits Mason baseball in 8-3 victory

The Seahawks of UNC Wilmington showed on Saturday why they’re ranked No. 25 in the country. They out hit and out pitched the George Mason University Patriots in front of a raucous Spuhler Field crowd of 346, which at times seemed mostly in favor of the visitors.

Over the last 20 games Mason’s record is 2-18. During that span they have frequently beat themselves, either in the form of numerous or costly errors and missed opportunities.

Faith, academics drive Hendricks in long road to recovery

A few months ago he was sporting a Rollie Fingers-esque mustache, one that earned him the Movember Foundation’s “Man of Movember” title for Washington D.C.

Today, he’s clean shaven and wearing glasses along with a pea coat and scarf over a button-down checkered shirt. Brett Hendricks, a first-year graduate student at George Mason University, no longer resembles the famous Oakland Athletics closer of the mid-1970’s. Today he looks like the studious type—like himself.

Mason baseball ends 10-game losing streak with 4-2 win over Towson

It was a great day to be a Patriot on Saturday when George Mason University took on Towson University.

The Patriots (13-22, 5-12 CAA) were able to put their 10-game losing streak behind them as the offense finally came alive, propelling the struggling squad to a 4-2 victory over Towson.

The Tigers (18-17, CAA 8-6) fought hard all game, until giving up four runs in the bottom of the eighth. Starting pitcher Paul Beers threw a gem of a game for 7 strong innings until Mason’s pitcher-catcher tandem of Anthony Montefusco and Patrick Esposito got the best of him.

Towson (18-16, 8-5 CAA) executed their small-ball approach almost perfectly, taking advantage of a seemingly disorganized Mason defense, for a 10-6 victory.

The Patriots (12-22, 4-12 CAA) lost control of the game in the sixth, giving up an onslaught of seven runs. Despite a three hit, two double performance from junior right fielder Josh Leemhuis, Mason continued to struggle at the plate.
