GW Baseball's Tom Sheridan Selected to University of Mary Washington Hall of Fame
Colonials' Associate Head Coach to Be Honored at Ceremony on February 1
Sept. 17, 2013
FREDERICKSBURG, Va. - George Washington baseball Associate Head Coach Tom Sheridan will be inducted into the University of Mary Washington Athletic Hall of Fame, the school announced last week.
Sheridan founded the UMW baseball program in 1987 and built the program from scratch, going on to win 579 games during his 25-year career at the Fredericksburg, Va., university.
A nine-time Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) Coach of the Year, Sheridan led the Eagles to eight CAC championships, two Blue/Grey Conference titles and 11 NCAA Division III Tournaments. He is also one of just a handful of coaches in the history of Division III baseball to earn 500 career victories.
Sheridan, a member of the staff that led the James Madison baseball program to the 1983 College World Series, is also a member of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame.
In addition to his collegiate baseball experience, Sheridan has also worked in the baseball operations department for the New York Yankees, including during the 2009 season when the Yankees won the World Series.
In his first season at George Washington, Sheridan played a major role in the Colonials winning 15 league games and returning to the Atlantic 10 Championship for the first time since 2006. Under Sheridan's tutelage, the GW pitching staff posted its lowest ERA since 2004 and the lowest number of walks since the 2003 season.
The pitching staff was very strong in Atlantic 10 Conference games, allowing the second-fewest hits and third-fewest runs while posting a 3.13 ERA, which ranked fifth in the league. Additionally, the Colonials led the Atlantic 10 with five shutouts, including three by a 1-0 score. Compared to the 2012 season, the staff posted a 37 percent reduction in walks, hit batters and wild pitches.
