Baseball begins conference play at Pitt Field Friday

Consistency will be the key to the baseball team's success as it starts its Atlantic 10 Conference play this Saturday against Fordham University. In what coach Mark McQueen called one of its most challenging early seasons, the baseball team has played better than its record reflects, he said. "We beat the teams we should have and played competitively against the higher-ranked teams," McQueen said. The biggest challenges facing the team as it heads into A-10 conference play are consistency and finding the right pitching lineup.

Baseball starts season with two weekends in Fla.

Seven returning starters will lead the University of Richmond baseball team when it begins its season tomorrow in Jacksonville, Fla. The Spiders practiced indoors during much of the preseason because of the snow, but senior pitcher Matt Zielinski said that shouldn't stop them from playing well at the start of the season. "We don't plan on using the weather as an excuse," Zielinski said.

Major League Baseball's 2009 season has officially begun, and for fans across the country that usually means it is time to grab some hot dogs, a cold beer and head out to the ballpark.

Richmond junior catcher Evan Stehle entered the game in a 1-7 slump, but came out of it in a big way to help lift the University of Richmond baseball team to a 5-4 victory over Duquesne University.

Spiders defeat Niagara in first game of Saturday doubleheader

Spider right fielder Ryan Metzroth said during a recent interview that being team captain meant leading by example, both on the field and off the field. If leadership on the field means hitting 3-for-4, with a home run, four runs batted-in and three runs scored, then Metzroth was a leader during the season opener, during which Richmond won 8-6 over the Niagara University Purple Eagles Saturday at Pitt Field. Metzroth hit his first home run of the season his first time at bat, sending Eagles pitcher Marcus Spaulding's pitch over the left-center field wall, hitting the new life-sized stuffed Spiderman doll hanging upside down from the field's new scoreboard. The home run scored junior third baseman Cameron Brown, who had been injured for most of last season.

Life before the steriods era

We can't quite say goodbye to cold weather yet, but it is time to say goodbye to the baseball offseason. The University of Richmond baseball team is beginning its season this weekend, and many Major League Baseball players have already arrived in Florida to start their spring training. But, as I've been preparing myself for the start of the 2009 baseball season, I've felt more nostalgia for old seasons than I have excitement for the one to come.
