Q&A with former SHU baseball player and current Director of Baseball Operations, Zack Weigel

Zack Weigel arrived at Seton Hall in the fall of 2012. By his own admission, offers from Division I schools to play college baseball were not flying through his doors like the pop flies he would eventually catch at Owen T. Carroll Field. Seton Hall was the school that gave Weigel, from Oak Park, Ill., a chance. Weigel delivered with two All-Big East Second Team selections, as he played an integral part in a four-year stretch in which...

A look into the baseball mind of Rob Sheppard

Boxes filled with clothing – the word “beanies” partially scribbled on the side of some – sports equipment and much more linger around the cluttered space. The floor is graced with a baseball, a black Under Armour backpack and several Rawlings baseball bags filled with beat-up bats. Upon entering, one could have easily mistaken it for the inventory room of a Modell’s Sporting Goods store. In actuality, it is the office of Seton Hall...
