Family Affair: Sheppard gets 400th win on legendary father’s 82nd birthday

It was only fitting that senior pitcher Matt Leon was on the bump as Seton Hall recorded the final out of its Big East opener on April 13. The former walk-on helped secure the 4-3 victory that was worth more than just the Pirates’ 13th win of the season – it was coach Rob Sheppard’s 400th of his career. “It was exciting, I mean he’s put in a lot of time for us, so it’s exciting to get that for him,” Leon said. “He gave me a shot to...

Intentional throwing at batters is good for baseball

Baseball fans saw tempers flare on April 11 as the Rockies and Padres, along with the Yankees and Red Sox, each cleared the benches in their respective games. The first of the two feuds came when Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo threw behind Rockies star Nolan Arenado in what was likely a response to three hit batsmen between the two teams in the previous two games of the series. Infuriated, Arenado charged the mound, swinging his fists at...

The British Boys: Bond and history behind the men’s golf trio

Every good group has a nickname, and the British trio that makes up nearly half of the Seton Hall men’s golf team is no different. “The British Boys,” as they are called, consists of sophomores Alex McAuley and Alex Chalk, from Douglas, Isle of Man and Castle Douglas, Scotland, in addition to freshman Gregor Tait from Martlesham Heath, England. Before they crossed the pond to play golf at the Hall, they were familiar with one another...

Matt Leon: Seton Hall’s Swiss Army knife

No matter the inning, fifth, seventh or ninth, Matt Leon is always ready to step out of the bullpen with the game on the line. Seton Hall’s new closer, Leon is replacing Zach Prendergast who graduated last year and Leon is perhaps the most consistent and versatile relief pitcher this year for coach Rob Sheppard’s Pirates. “Matt is a product of his work ethic and I couldn’t be happier for a young man, who, especially in his senior...
