The University of Mary Washington baseball team is off to a 9-5 start in their 2017 campaign. Last year, the team went 24-15 and was ranked as high as No. 12 in the nation. Fifth year head coach, Wayne Riser and the Eagles faced some adversity immediately coming into the season when a number of key players quit or ran into ineligibility, notably some pitchers on the team. The Eagles are currently with seven pitchers on the roster, along with a number of position players who can pitch as well, though, not being their main position.
