Giving a Diamond on the Diamond
It was quite a memorable Senior Day for
Richmond’s Jacob Mayers.
He started on the mound and allowed three runs
(one earned) in 7.1 innings with five strikeouts. Mayers had two
hits at the plate as the Spiders posted a 4-3 win in 10 innings
over Temple at Pitt Field to capture the Atlantic 10 series.
But the biggest play was yet to come.
Mayers returned to the mound following the game
for a photo with his girlfriend. After the picture, he dropped
to a knee and proposed to his girlfriend.
