The George Washington Colonials baseball team is a varsity intercollegiate athletic team of George Washington University in Washington, DC, United States.[2] The team is a member of the Atlantic 10 Conference, which is part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association's Division I. George Washington's first baseball team was fielded in 1891. The team plays its home games at Barcroft Park in Arlington, Virginia. The Colonials are coached by Gregg Ritchie.

History[edit]

Barcroft Park in Arlington, Va., has been the home of GW baseball since the team relocated off The Ellipse in 1993. The facility underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2012 to install a new press box, concession area, dugouts, bullpens and stadium seating.[3]

In 2014, Ave Tucker, an alumnus and former center fielder, donated $2 million. The name of the facility was officially changed to Tucker Field in his honor. He graduated in 1977 from the George Washington University School of Business.[3]
