Baseball rounding into form at the right time as Big East Play approaches

It took nearly the entire first month of the season, but Seton Hall is finally rounding into the form that propelled the Pirates to the Big East Championship game a year ago. In February, Seton Hall began its season with a trip down to Florida that did not go as planned. The Pirates entered the campaign with high expectations based on their run at the end of last season, but were floored by the competition they faced in Port...

Huntzinger confidently overcoming challenges

For a freshman to jump from backup to starter within a year is an impressive feat on its own, but to do so while also changing positions is even more applaudable. Jerry Huntzinger saw the field nine times for the Seton Hall baseball team last season and featured heavily as the team’s back-up catcher. He hit .111 in nine at bats and managed just four RBIs in 2018, but those statistics would have never foreseen the efficiency and...

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...
