GW Baseball Begins Fall Practice at Newly Renovated Barcroft Park
New Coaching Staff Takes Colonials Through Two-Hour Session
Oct. 1, 2012
ARLINGTON, Va. - The George Washington baseball program conducted its first official practice of the 2012-13 academic year at the recently completed and newly renovated Barcroft Park on Monday afternoon.
The Colonials' players, under the direction of Associate Head Coach and Interim Head Coach Tom Sheridan, assistant coach Dave Lorber and volunteer assistant coach Stephanos Stroop, partook in a two-hour session that touched on the fundamentals of the game with a heavy emphasis on strength and conditioning.
Hitters participated in drills using pitching machines inside the new outdoor batting cages at the facility as well as work hitting off batting tees. Pitchers threw bullpen sessions while also working on conditioning and agility.
Construction was recently completed on the renovations at Barcroft Park, making it one of the top collegiate facilities in the region. Updated amenities include a new FieldTurf playing surface, expanded grandstand-style seating, covered dugouts, bullpens, batting cages, press box, concession stands, restrooms, entry plaza and expanded parking.
The Colonials hosted 20 games at the stadium last season while construction continued in and around the facility. This season's home opener will mark the first game at the fully renovated and completed venue.
