Team History
UVA Men’s Gold is coming off a disappointing early Sunday exit last year. The inability of more than half the team to stay healthy combined with a former “professional” athlete repeatedly striking out proved too much to overcome. The team looks to reclaim the glory of 2015, when captains David Martin (now literally saving immigrants world-wide as a judicial law clerk in Seattle) and Evan Guimond (now literally incapable of saving even $5 from his paycheck as a second-year associate in Washington, D.C.) led the team to victory.
Practice Regimen
Batting practice and infield/outfield, more often than we would like to admit.
Want To Play Against
Any other school in the T14
DON’T Want To Play Against
Any school from Florida
Favorite Thing About The Tournament
The expectations. Treating the tournament more seriously than anyone else. The knowledge that if we win no one will care and if we lose (again) we will be mocked.
The Tournament Would Be More Awesome If
We weren’t trying so desperately to capture our lost youth with each swing.
Anecdotes

Will Vieth sends the entire GroupMe the weather the night before any team practice or game, as if he doesn’t understand that everyone has an iPhone.

Jonathan York once used a computer program to measure the distance of a batting practice home run, and also sent that to the GroupMe.
