GW Baseball Players Set for Summer League Action
Four Colonials to Play in Renowned Cape Cod League
WASHINGTON - George Washington baseball players are en route to various summer collegiate leagues around the country, including a quartet of players headed to the premier amateur league in the nation in the Cape Cod League.
As of press time the Colonials have 13 players signed to nine leagues across the nation.
GW will have four players compete in the Cape Cod League, which is believed to be the most placements in a single summer in program history.
The premier amateur baseball league in the nation since 1885, the Cape Cod League is a 10-team league that features a 44-game regular-season schedule. One of the first summer collegiate leagues to use wood bats, the Cape League boasts over 290 alumni on current Major League rosters. Additionally, over 1,100 players have gone on to play in the Major Leagues throughout the league's history.
Rising senior and Atlantic 10 First Team All-Conference selection Joey Bartosic, along with rising junior Robbie Metz, will play for the Wareham Gateman. Rising junior Brandon Chapman will catch for the Brewster Whitecamps and rising senior and GW's all-time career-saves leader Eddie Muhl will pitch for the Cotuit Ketleers.
A pair of rising seniors will compete in the Coastal Plains League, a 16-team wooden bat league that spans Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. Atlantic 10 All-Conference First Team selection Bobby Campbell and rising senior Andrew Selby will both suit up for the Florence Redwolves.
Rising junior Mark Osis, who concluded the regular season as GW's leader and ranked third overall in the Atlantic 10 with a .368 batting average, will look to build on his successful 2016 calendar year when he plays for the Marthas Vineyard Sharks in the Futures Collegiate Baseball League.
