Freshmen making an instant impact on the diamond

Making the jump from high school to college baseball is no easy task. With a grueling practice and workout schedule, the always tricky balance between academics and athletics, and travel that no youth level experience can emulate, many freshmen struggle right off the bat. For a handful of Seton Hall’s newcomers, that has not been the case. With 13 freshmen on the roster and a handful of spots up for grabs, coach Rob Sheppard has not...

With crucial weekend approaching, it’s now or never for Seton Hall

Seton Hall has three games left on its regular season schedule, but the final two will not mean much should the Pirates falter on the road against Georgetown this weekend. After losing to St. John’s in what initially seemed like a meltdown of epic proportion before a late surge made it a game at the end, Seton Hall’s back will be up against the wall in Washington D.C. on Saturday evening. If the Pirates come out on the wrong end...

Seton Hall’s NCAA Tournament hopes continue to slip away in loss to St. John’s

Kiera Alexander / Asst. Photography Editor A little less than a week ago, Seton Hall was in a good spot to make its fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. With a Quadrant 1 road win over Creighton in their back pocket coupled with an impressive non-conference resume, the Pirates were in prime position to go from on the bubble to safely in the field of 64. Since then, the tide has turned and Seton Hall will now have to fight...

Seton Hall looking to get over the hump after falling short in 2018

Last season, Seton Hall found itself one win away from winning a Big East title for the first time since 2011.The Pirates fell just short of accomplishing that feat, but the groundwork for the 2019 season was laid in a season-ending loss to St. John’s in the Big East Championship game. Expectations surrounding the program are at an all-time high and rightfully so, as Seton Hall has the foundation in place to not only win the...

DeVito at the head of Seton Hall’s rotation in 2019

In 2018, Ricky DeVito took a leap bullpen piece to ace of the pitching staff and Big East Pitcher of the Year. Now, he is preparing himself to take an even bigger step in 2019.

Baseball prepares for life away from home

It’s one thing to go on the road and win a series against a conference rival, but it’s a whole new ballgame when every game you play is on the road. That is what Seton Hall is forced to deal with in 2019, as Owen T. Carroll is out of commission for the season. With their home ballpark undergoing renovations, the Pirates will take their show on the road for the duration of the year as they try to build on a 2018 season that nearly...

Kevin Willard’s schedule gripes are warranted

Kevin Willard has never been a fan of the way the Big East puts together its conference schedule. From the day he took over, Willard has always had something to say about Seton Hall’s conference slate. From rugged weeks against stacked opponents to the ridiculous 9 p.m. time slot that the Pirates often found themselves relegated to, Willard has never been shy about voicing his displeasure about the schedule. Most of the time,...

For true fans of the game, Super Bowl LIII was far from boring

For the majority of those who tuned in, Super Bowl LIII could be summed up in one word: boring. Neither the New England Patriots or Los Angeles Rams could get anything going on offense. The first quarter came and went without any points, as a string of three and outs and stalled drives put a damper on the action. The Patriots got on the board in the second quarter, but not in the form of a touchdown, and took a 3-0 lead into halftime....

Turnovers have been common theme during recent losing streak

Plenty of problems have plagued Seton Hall in its recent four-game losing streak, but none of those problems are more concerning than the Pirates’ alarming turnover rate over the past two weeks. Prior to the mid-season skid, Seton Hall had turned the ball over 53 times in its first four Big East games. Fifty-three turnovers in such a short span is not ideal, but it’s also not terrible for a young and inexperienced team going through...

Sloppy play gets the best of Seton Hall in loss to No. 18 Villanova

Seton Hall had a week off to recharge, get healthy and work out the kinks that had plagued the Pirates throughout their recent losing streak. The expectation was that they would come out energized and hungry to end their three-game skid. Instead, Seton Hall couldn’t get out of its own way and turned in arguably its worst showing of the season in an 80-52 loss to No. 18 Villanova on Sunday. “I think Nova came out fighting more than us....
