Spring Training for Club Baseball

Mason Recreation’s Club Baseball team is headed to Florida over spring break to participate in NCBA’s Spring Training 2015 Showcase. While there they’ll play against five of the 27 teams attending that week. During the four week event, 63 teams from all over the country come together to practice, train, and play the great game of baseball.
Nate Berlin, Club Baseball’s president and a junior majoring in Finance, says most of the 20+ player team is going to Spring Training. Following last year’s District 3 win, Nate feels like the trip will make the team even stronger. “Our team is talented and we work well together. The trip will be good prep for us to do even better than we did last year.” He adds, “While we play for the love of baseball, we also know that by attending Spring Training, we show that George Mason’s Club Baseball team is strong and competitive. It gets Mason’s name out there.”
Because the team is considered “young” due to its number of freshmen and returning sophomores, Club Baseball has a good chance to have another very successful season that could continue into one or two more years. Nate says that baseball is a very strong sport and they have lots of interest from both freshmen and transfers. He credits the interest to its timelessness. He explains, “Baseball has no age limits. It’s available for young and old. It truly is for everyone.”
Club Baseball’s season begins Saturday, March 14 when they’ll play the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg. Game time TBA. If you are interested in joining the club, please contact Club Baseball via email.
