The Washington Post reported today that George Washington and St. Joseph’s will play the first game in the Washington Nationals’ new 41,000-seat ballpark. The March 22 game will be a test run for the new big league ballpark, coming a week before a scheduled exhibition between the Nats and Orioles and eight days before the home opener against the Braves.
Shawn Pender will be going to plenty of big league parks this season, but not with St. Joe’s. The former Orioles crosschecker resigned as St. Joe’s coach Tuesday to take a job as an advance scout with the Reds organization, covering the majors. Pender’s three Hawks teams went just 41-116 in three seasons, and William & Mary swept the Hawks in four games to open this season. Assistant coaches Aaron Barras, Greg Manco and Lee Saverio will run the team while the university decides whom to hire as an interim coach.
