GW Baseball in Arlington

You may remember a few weeks ago I wrote about GW baseball in Arlington. Recently, on one of those beautiful spring days, I decided to head over to Barcroft Park(field #6 by the way, not #4) to check a game out.

GW was playing William and Mary - my alma mater so that was a bonus for me. Go Tribe! (my apologies for not rooting for the home team)

Random Aside: I googled "alma mater" because I was paranoid that I was spelling it wrong. Did you know alma mater is Latin for nourishing mother and was the motto of the most ancient university in the world, the University of Bologna in Italy, founded in 1088 - thus the origins of our use of alma mater? But I digress. Back to baseball.

So, when we left off I was enjoying a beautiful spring day of college baseball in Arlington. Here's my summary -- if you're a big baseball fan, you'll enjoy it. It's pretty high level baseball up close and personal. That can be a lot of fun if you're a baseball fan. If you're not a baseball fan, I wouldn't recommend this as a way to try it out. You'll get bored. But all in all, not a bad way to spend a beautiful spring day. If you're looking to play hooky this afternoon (4/26 - 2:30) - Georgetown is "in town", and if you're free Saturday afternoon, check out the LaSalle game.
(1:00 PM).

And in case you are wondering, it was not a good day for Colonial fans. William and Mary put a good thumping on, 13-1.

If you want to mix baseball and Bologna, check out You'll find out they actually play the national past time pretty well in the land of the oldest university. They even sing take me out to the ball game during the seventh inning stretch.
