Baseball team heading into new season with new coach

When senior catcher JB Gadd heard the news that Tracy Woodson had been hired as University of Richmond's new head baseball coach, he was thrilled at the prospect of being able to learn from a former Major League Baseball player. Almost seven months later, with a fall full of major league-caliber coaching behind them, Gadd and his teammates are looking forward to seeing how the newly configured team performs competitively as the Spiders prepare to kick off their 2014 season, he said. In June 2013, former head coach Mark McQueen resigned after 19 years with the Richmond baseball program.
