Today is the official first day of spring, but not so much for the Navy Midshipmen Baseball team. Practice for the 2018 season started on January 26, and the first game of the season was February 16 in Winston-Salem, NC; baseball season has been in full-swing for a month.
It has been a rough week for the University of Maryland baseball team. After last week’s loss to West Virginia, the Terps managed to bounce back with a win over a solid George Mason team. However, Maryland could not carry any momentum into the weekend, as they were swept by Boston College. The Eagles were near the bottom of the ACC before this weekend. Today, Maryland lost to James Madison.
The Terps did get some good starts over the weekend. Jake Stinnett, the team’s ace, struck out ten hitters on Friday, but Maryland couldn’t generate any offense in a 5-1 loss. On Sunday, sophomore Jake Drossner, who has been a pleasant surprise for the ballclub, turned in another good outing. Drossner only allowed four hits, but the Terps once again failed to find any offense in a 5-2 loss.
Once again the Maryland Terrapins baseball team partnered with the Vs. Cancer Foundation to raise funds and awareness for the fight against cancer. Their efforts were capped off on Saturday April 19th where Terps players had their heads shaved after defeating the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Fans also participated in a balloon tribute, releasing a balloon in honor of those that lost their battle with the terrible disease. Read more about Terrapins Baseball Vs Cancer …
