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...

Pinkman settling in as Seton Hall pitching coach

During the summer of 2017, Seton Hall’s baseball team was dealt a major blow when veteran pitching coach and program alumnus Phil Cundari left South Orange after 19 seasons to assume the same position with in-state rival Rutgers. The departure of Cundari, the 2011 National Pitching Coach of the Year, left a big void on the Seton Hall coaching staff. Wisely, coach Rob Shepherd moved swiftly in finding a new pitching coach who is no...

Once you get a taste of something sweet, usually you want another bite. Seton Hall got a taste of the sweet life on Thursday, defeating NC State for the seniors’ first NCAA Tournament victory. But the Pirates did not come to Wichita to win just one game — they want it all, and they want to work for it just like they have through their careers. While the future has yet to be determined, Seton Hall’s seniors have paved...

New U.S. Soccer President Cordeiro has to transform youth development

In October 2017, U.S. Soccer reached a low point that many Americans did not think they would ever see: the U.S. men’s national team failed to qualify for the World Cup. This failure came at a time where viewership and popularity of soccer was growing immensely in the U.S., and America was showcasing the teenage sensation Christian Pulisic as a world-class footballer. In the wake of the disappointment, USSF president Sunil Gulati...

Bozzella gets 400th win: A milestone 26 years in the making

When the Seton Hall women’s basketball team defeated the Georgetown Hoyas on Jan. 14, the win was more significant than a boost in the Big East standings.

Sanogo’s new-found jumper providing SHU with new element on offense

Throughout Ismael Sanogo’s first three seasons at Seton Hall, there were not many moments where he was spotting up to take a jump shot. A career 3.4-point per game scorer, almost all of Sanogo’s baskets came from close range. For Sanogo, a 10 to 15 foot jumper was out of the question. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, Sanogo has gone from an offensive liability to Seton Hall’s secret weapon. The first step in Sanogo’s progression as a...

One Giant mistake

The job of a quarterback is to be the general on the field. He is the man, the leader and the one that gets the blame when his team fails.

Through 14 seasons as a Giant, with 210 consecutive starts, two Super Bowls and two Super Bowl MVP’s, Manning has been the face of the New York Giants, and has done so with the utmost class and respect.
