GW Baseball Takes Advantage of Warm Weather
17 Days Until Opening Day at Davidson
Jan. 29, 2013
ARLINGTON, Va. - The George Washington baseball team was able to take advantage of the unseasonably warm temperatures on Tuesday afternoon as the team headed out to Barcorft Park for an outdoor practice and intra-squad scrimmage.
The Colonials, under the direction of first-year head coach Gregg Ritchie, have been practicing primarily indoors using the auxiliary gym spaces in the Smith Center, concentrating primarily on strength and conditioning in addition to batting practice and bullpen sessions.
However, with clear skies and the temperature approaching 70-degrees, the Colonials loaded up and took the short drive to Arlington to get some outdoor practice at their state-of-the-art facility.
Pitchers threw long toss while position players worked out in batting cages, complete with brand new pitching machines that are capable of throwing multiple pitches (fastball, breaking ball).
The squad then split into two teams for an intra-squad scrimmage.
Spirits are high and the energy surrounding the program is contagious. Opening day is 17 days away.
